Ojukwu’s niece in NDLEA net for importing cocaine from Brazil
A document issued by the agency disclosed that Ojukwu’s niece is currently cooling her heels alongside one Ali Bala Adamu and two others after an abandoned luggage from Brazil was found to contain 2.24kg of cocaine at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) Lagos.
Vanguard reports that those being interrogated include Adamu, Ojukwu, Victor Umeh, Uche Igwelo and Egbuche Fidelis Osiita.
The acting chairman/chief executive of the NDLEA, Mrs Roli Bode-George, stated that the agency would prosecute whoever is found guilty.
“The NDLEA is following every lead professionally and will exploit more opportunities towards getting every culprit arrested. We have also expanded the scope of our investigation and everyone involved in this illegal importation of narcotics shall be diligently prosecuted.
“The agency will continue to uphold the rule of law and dislodge drug trafficking organisations in the country.
“NDLEA will not compromise its high standard of operation. We are working very hard with international and local collaborators in projecting the image of Nigeria in drug control programmes. Any attempt by any person or group of persons to sabotage this great achievement shall be resisted. Probity and strict law enforcement shall be sustained”, the agency stated.
