The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, has
given details of how loads of Captagon, a brand of Amphetamine meant for insurgents’ camps in the country was intercepted by its operatives at the Apapa port in Lagos.
The Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of NDLEA Mr. Mohamed Buba Marwa made this known today at a media briefing to update the public on the recent seizure.
Mr. Marwa condemned the evil intent of those behind the importation of the illicit substance into the country at a very critical time when the nation is facing some security challenges.
He vowed that the Agency would not rest until everyone connected to the consignment is arrested and prosecuted.
Mr. Marwa said going by the street value of about twenty-five dollars per tablet, the importer would have raised eleven point three million dollars, which is equivalent to six billion naira.
