NDLEA confiscates 13 Million Tramadol pills in Lagos

About 13 million tramadol pills were found at a home in the Lekki neighborhood of Lagos state by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).

The structure, which is located in Victoria Garden City (VGC), was destroyed on Monday, according to Femi Babafemi, an NDLEA spokesperson.

Babafemi further confirmed that the home belonged to a drug lord, who has now been arrested and detained.

“Another VGC drug bust! As massive and beautiful as this mansion located in highbrow VGC Lekki Lagos (pictured here) looks, it’s not occupied by humans but used to warehouse over 13 million pills of Tramadol 225mg by another billionaire drug baron now in custody of @ndlea_nigeria. Details coming in a statement shortly,” he said.

Just two weeks prior, the organization and the US Drug Enforcement Administration achieved a record-breaking single cocaine seizure in the nation.

In the two-day operation, at least five alleged drug lords, including a Jamaican and the warehouse manager, were detained.

Soji Jibril, 69, of Ibadan, Oyo State, Emmanuel Chukwu, 65, of Ekwulobia, Anambra State, Wasiu Akinade, 53, of Ibadan, Oyo State, Sunday Oguntelure, 53, of Okitipupa, Ondo State, and Kelvin Smith, 42, of Kingston, Jamaica were the suspects detained during the operation.

According to reports, the individuals are part of an international drug cartel that the CIA has been tracking since 2018.
