 40-ft container of Tramadol intercepted in Lagos

A  40-ft container loaded with Tramadol and other banned medicines has been intercepted by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) at Brawal Terminal in Lagos.

 

NDLEA Chairman, Col. Muhammad Abdallah (Retd) confirmed the interception and further revealed that the drug which is one of the banned medicines in the country was taken to a bonded terminal in Apapa.

 

A joint examination revealed 255 cartons of different types of Tramadol and other banned medicines.

 

A statement released by NDLEA spokesperson Jonah Achema, read; 

 

 “Police detectives in Apapa Area Command of Lagos State intercepted a 40-foot container laden with drugs suspected to be Tramadol and codeine on August 6.

“The container was intercepted on water and taken to a bonded terminal in Apapa.

“NDLEA’s investigation further revealed another 40-foot container. This joint examination revealed 255 cartons of different types of Tramadol and other banned medicines.

“The NDLEA investigation further revealed that  the Tramadol is manufactured in Pakistan which is a new discovery to the agency because previous Tramadol was manufactured in India.

“This is of global interest. Drug trafficking is one of the vices fueling insecurity across the country.

“Abdallah observes that this investigation is a major breakthrough for the agency revealing the new route for movement of Tramadol into Nigeria which is from Pakistan via Europe (Hamburg) to Nigeria."
