NDLEA Seizes Cocaine In Teabags, Arrests Traffickers At Lagos, Abuja Airports

Published

on

Operatives of National Drug Law Enforcement (NDLEA) have seized 4.1 kilograms of cocaine wrapped in tea bags as well as arrested four traffickers at the Lagos and Abuja airports.

The spokesman of the agency, Femi Babafemi, said this in a statement issued on Sunday, explaining that the cocaine was intercepted from a Brazil-based cartel.

“At least, four traffickers involved in the attempts to import and export illicit drugs through the country in the last week are now in the custody of the agency,” the statement read.

“One of them is 33-year-old Pascal Ekene Okolo, an indigene of Ihe in Ogwu Local Government Area of Enugu State, who was arrested during an inward clearance of Qatar Airways flight from Sao Paulo via Doha at the arrival hall of the NAIA on Sunday 17th April.

“Okolo, who claimed to be into wine business in Brazil, was arrested with a travelling bag containing different medicinal tea bags, which were used to conceal 4.1 kilograms of cocaine.”

According to the anti-drug agency, a Canada-based Nigerian, Anigo Christian Godspower, was intercepted at the D-Arrival Hall of the MMIA during an inward clearance of passengers on Qatar Airways from Sao Paolo via Doha to Lagos. This happened last Sunday.

Two blocks of cocaine weighing 2.10kg were discovered when his luggage was searched. But the suspect, 52, and a native of Udi local council area of Enugu State, claimed he ran an unregistered Bureau De Change business before taking up the illicit drug trade.

“The bid by another cartel to export 950 grams of Heroin concealed in the soles of lady’s footwear through the MMIA cargo shed was equally foiled by anti-narcotic officers who have so far arrested two suspects linked to the crime,” it added.

“Those arrested between 16th and 17th April in connection with an attempt to export the drug to Monrovia, Liberia include Idokoja Solomon Chukwurah and Patrick John Tochukwu.”

This is just as a suspected fake security agent was arrested on Saturday 23rd April in Abuja while moving 23.8kg of cannabis from Lagos to Maiduguri, Borno State.

In his reaction to the feats, the Chairman/Chief Executive of NDLEA, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa also commended the operatives of the affected commands.

‘N266.5m Fraud’: EFCC Arraigns Fake General Who Caimed Buhari Nominated Him As Army Chief

Published

on

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday arraigned Bolarinwa Abiodun, a fake Army General.


Abiodun was docked before Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo of the Special Offences Court in Ikeja, the capital of Lagos.

He faces a 13-count charge including obtaining money by false pretence, forgery of documents and possession of documents containing false pretence to the tune of N266,500,000.

The offences violate Section 1 (3) of the Advance Fee Fraud and other Related Offences Act 2006; Section 363 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2015 and Section 6 of the Advance Fee Fraud and other Related Offences Act No 14 of 2006.


Abiodun, who posed as a General in the Nigerian Army, allegedly made false representations to the complainant, Kodef Clearing Resources.

The defendant claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari shortlisted him and one other as nominees for Chief of Army Staff (COAS) position and that he needed a grant to “press and process the appointment”.

Abiodun, arrested at his house in the Alagbado area of Lagos, on Wednesday January 12, 2022, allegedly forged a letter of appointment purportedly signed by the President.

The defendant is alleged to have, in May 2020, forged a Nigeria Army ID card with serial number 387140, claiming it was issued by the Army.


Abiodun also “forged a Letter of Recommendation” purportedly signed by ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo listing one Adebayo Rasaq Adebola, with recruitment No 77RRI/OG/556/0032555 and Adeogun Emmanuel Adesola with No 77RRI/OG/352/0123751 for employment into the Army.

At the time of arrest, six pump action guns, three cartridge bullets, a swagger stick and several doctored documents were found in his possession.

Abiodun pleaded “not guilty” to the charges when read to him.

Prosecuting counsel, A.O. Muhammed, prayed the court for a trial date and for the remand of the defendant at a Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS) facility.

The defence counsel, Kayode Lawal informed the court of a summons for bail filed on behalf of Abiodun.

Justice Taiwo adjourned till Thursday April 14, 2022 and ordered that the defendant be remanded at the Ikoyi prison.
