Seme duo bust for alleged drugs

27 April 2016, 20:12

Abuja - The Seme Area Command of the Nigeria Customs Service has handed over two suspects to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) over alleged possession of illegal substances.

The suspects, Abdullahi Ismail and Valentine Malizu, were arrested for alleged possession of 40 wraps of substances suspected to be illicit hard drugs, weighing over 43kg and with a value of more than N412 000.

These were said to be concealed inside cartons of crayfish. Seme Border is a settlement in Nigeria on the border with Benin.

Customs Area Controller in charge of Seme border, Victor Dimka, handed the duo over to officials of NDLEA.

Dimka said that the seizure was made possible by the Border Patrol Crack Team acting on intelligence report.

“The information received was properly and timely handled, the careful usage of the information paid off when the two suspects were arrested. As a crack team that acts swiftly on information gathered, the 40 parcels of the substance suspected to be Indian hemp was arrested by the team on at Elijah,” Dimka said.

He added that an attempt by the suspects to bribe the Border Patrol officers was resisted.

The suspects were also found to be in possession of over nine different SIM cards and assorted charms.

Dimka re-iterated that the tempo of aggressive patrol within the border will be sustained.

“All those involved in trans-border crimes should desist from the act or they will continue to face the full wrath of the law,” he warned.
