NDLEA uncovers 12 containers of Tramadol in Lagos



The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) says it has uncovered over 340 million tablets of Tramadol in 12 containers at the Apapa port in Lagos.

The agency’s head of Public Affairs, Jonah Achema, said this in a statement yesterday in Abuja.

Achema said the tablets which were in various dosages ranging from 120 milligrams to 250 milligrams were recovered from 12 containers in the ongoing search in Apapa port.

He said the containers were on the watch-list of NDLEA since November, 2017 and were brought to Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) for search based on the agency’s reasonable suspicion of the containers containing tramadol.

He stated that the NCS on Wednesday dropped 28 of 62 containers slated for search, among which 12 of them were been found to contain tramadol.

Achema added that the agency in November last year, intercepted 160 million tablets of tramadol at the Apapa port which ranged from 220 to 250 milligrams.
