NDLEA Intercepts Large Consignment Of Loud Concealed In Loudspeakers At Lagos Airport

Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), have intercepted a large consignment of Loud, a synthetic strong strain of cannabis, concealed in giant loudspeakers tucked in a consolidated cargo imported from New York, United States of America.

When the giant wooden boxes dressed as sound speakers seized by NDLEA officers at the NAHCO import shed of the Lagos airport, were opened, the sound boxes were stuffed with 60 bags of the expensive but highly sought-after psychoactive substance, Loud, weighing 33.5 kilograms.

As a result, three suspects: a freight agent Akeem Afeez; logistics company manager Babalola Ayodeji Gboyega and the receiver of the consignment Taiwo Olusegun Anuoluwapo have been arrested in follow-up operations between Thursday 15th and Friday 16th February 2024.

According to Femi Babafemi, Director, Media & Advocacy, NDLEA Headquarters Abuja, revealed various arrests in a statement on Sunday adding that while Afeez was arrested at the airport, Gboyega was nabbed at his office on Allen Avenue, Ikeja and Taiwo traced to his residence at 13 Ayo Babatunde Crescent, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos, where he was picked on Friday.
