Men of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, has recovered cocaine worth N32bn in a consignment at the Tincan Port in Lagos.
The illicit drugs arrived Nigeria from Brazil and was placed on surveillance for some days before two clearing agents showed up on Monday to clear it.
The arrest was confirmed in a statement by the Commander, Tincan Port Command of the NDLEA, Sumaila Ethan.
According to him, the clearing agents were arrested, while the consignment was searched and the substance weighing 43.11kg was found in it.
“After a thorough search, we discovered 40 compressed parcels, which after laboratory investigations, tested positive for 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.
“The Tincan Port seizure followed the various seizures made at the Lagos and Abuja airports as well as in Edo, Katsina, Nasarawa and Benue states in the last three weeks.”
