Cocaine Worth N32b Seized At Tincan Island Port

Forty parcels of cocaine weighing 43.11kg, with an estimated street value of over N32 billion was intercepted at the Tincan Island Port, Lagos.

The cargo came from Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The Commander of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, (NDLEA) at the port, Mr Sumaila Ethan disclosed this in a statement by the Head of Public Affairs,Mr Jonah Achema in Abuja.

Ethan noted that the agency has continued its offensive against drug barons and cartels in Nigeria with the latest seizure.

He said that the consignment containing the illicit drug was put under surveillance by operatives of the Tincan Island Command of the NDLEA for some days until two clearing agents showed up on Feb. 8, to clear it.

Ethan said the two clearing agents were arrested and the consignment, which was brought into Nigeria from Brazil on board a vessel marked MV Spar Scorpio, properly searched.

“After a thorough search, we discovered 40 compressed parcels, which after laboratory investigations tested positive to cocaine.
The two clearing agents have been taken into custody while we continue with the investigation.

“The seizure is no doubt an attestation to the renewed vigour in the operations of the agency.We appreciate our Chairman, Brig.-Gen. Buba Marwa, who provided guidance all through the operations”, the commander said.

Ethan stated that the Tincan Island port seizure was coming on the heels of similar ones at the Lagos and Abuja airports as well as from the FCT, Edo, Katsina State, Nasarawa State and Benue state Commands in the last three weeks.

He commended the commander, officers and men of the Tincan Port Command for the operation.
