Notorious Drugs Barons Nabbed with Drugs Worth over N2.5billion

Officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) have arrested two persons, Azuka Emmanuel (55) and Ndubuisi Okafor (23), with drugs worth over N2.5 billion trying to move through Cross River State.

The state NDLEA Director, Mrs. Anthonia Edeh, who made this disclosure in Calabar, said Azuka and Ndubuisi were arrested on the Yahe-Ikom transnational route with 76.050 kilograms of methamphetamine and 100.1kg of ephedrine worth N2.5 billion.

The baron and his boy were busted during unexpected “stop-and-search” by NDLEA officials.

The director also explained that the methamphetamine was concealed in synthetic Golden Morn cereal packs while the ephedrine was hidden inside Semovita packs and five industrial fillers. She commended officers of the command for their gallantry.

NDLEA continues to “demystify the activities of drug merchants”.
