Three persons have been arrested by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, over a consignment of methamphetamine concealed in powdered custard containers which was intercepted at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, MMIA, Ikeja Lagos.

A statement from Femi Babafemi, spokesperson of the anti-narcotic agency says the illicit drug consignment weighing 30.10 kilograms with a street value of N567 million was as part of a consolidated cargo going to London, United Kingdom before it was detected and seized by the operatives at the airport on Tuesday 16th May.

‘’This was swiftly followed by series of follow-up operations that led to the arrest of a freight agent, Nwobodo Chidiebere; a female suspect, Chioma Lucy Akuta and ultimately the drug lord behind the shipment, Charles Chinedu Ezeh, who was arrested at Sotel Suites, Amuwo Odofin, Lagos on Thursday 18th May. ‘’

Babafemi stated that Ezeh claimed he’s a businessman and deals in articles in Onitsha, Anambra State but investigations revealed he lived with his wife and children in London until 10th December 2022 when he fled to Nigeria after his involvement in a drug-related offence in the UK.

‘’Though he claimed to have been living in hotels since his return to Nigeria last December, operatives were however able to locate his mansion at No. 1 Hawawu Abikan Street, Lekki, on Friday 19th May, where a search was conducted and his travel and property documents among others were recovered.''Babafemi said.
