NDLEA Arrests Church General Overseer For Drug Trafficking In Lagos
The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has announced the arrest of a church General Overseer (GO) in Lagos for alleged involvement in drug trafficking. The identity and church affiliation of the accused have yet to be disclosed. The arrest took place in Lagos and was carried out by NDLEA operatives.
The GO was apprehended along with several other individuals in connection with an attempt to export methamphetamine and skunk to Dubai.
NDLEA Spokesperson, Femi Babafemi, confirmed the arrest in a social media post, where he expressed shock at the fact that the accused was a church leader. In his post, Mr. Babafemi stated, “It is deeply concerning that someone who is considered a spiritual leader would be involved in such illegal activities. The arrest of this individual sends a clear message that no one is above the law, regardless of their position or status in society.”
Mr. Babafemi also posted videos of the methamphetamine being concealed in kegs of palm oil, which was the method used to smuggle the drugs out of the country. In a statement released later that day, NDLEA provided more details about the operation and the individuals involved. The agency stated that it will be working closely with relevant law enforcement agencies to ensure that the accused face the full consequences of their actions.
This arrest highlights the ongoing efforts of the NDLEA to rid Nigeria of the illegal drug trade and send a message that drug trafficking will not be tolerated in any form. The agency is committed to working tirelessly to apprehend those involved in this dangerous and illegal activity and bring them to justice.
