In a significant operation, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has apprehended a 39-year-old man in possession of 8.2 kilograms of methamphetamine at a motor park in Mazamaza, Ojo area of Lagos state.

The arrest was disclosed in a statement by the agency's Director of Media and Advocacy, Femi Babafemi, on Sunday, June 23, 2024.

The methamphetamine, a highly addictive illicit substance commonly referred to as ice or crystal meth, was ingeniously packed in imported Dunkin’ turtle love chocolate wraps and hidden within the casing of three loudspeakers.

The suspect, identified as Michael Odiomume, was intercepted while attempting to send the consignment to Owerri, Imo state. The arrest took place on Wednesday, June 19, at the motor park, following intelligence received by the NDLEA.

According to Babafemi, "This operation is part of our ongoing efforts to curb the trafficking and distribution of illicit drugs within the country. The method of concealment used in this case highlights the lengths to which traffickers will go to evade detection."

Odiomume is currently in custody and is expected to face charges related to drug trafficking and possession of controlled substances.

The NDLEA continues to urge the public to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities related to drug trafficking, emphasizing the agency's commitment to eradicating the drug menace in Nigeria.
