A 25-year-old Mohammed Isah has been arrested by operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA.
The suspect was caught with 22,560 tablets of Diazepam and 12,390 capsules of Tramadol in Motors park, Agege, Lagos.
It is suspected that the illegal drugs were being moved to insurgents’ camps in Borno state.
While under interrogation, Isah revealed that he hailed from Gwoza LGA, Borno State and came to Lagos in 2013.
According to his statement, he was offered N50,000 by Kakali Abubakar to transport the drugs to Maiduguri.
Isah was advised by his employer to board a tanker going to Borno and deliver the drugs but he decided to take a bus.
Unfortunately, the suspect was intercepted by NDLEA in Lagos before he could make the delivery.
Operatives responsible for the interception have been hailed by Chairman/Chief Executive of NDLEA, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa for preventing the drugs from making their way into Borno.
