NDLEA Confirms Arrests Of NAHCO, SAHCOL Staff Over Drug Peddling At Lagos Airport

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has confirmed the arrest and detention of some staff of the Nigerian Aviation Handling Company (NAHCO) Plc and the Skyway Aviation Handling Company Limited (SAHCOL) at Murtala Muhammed International Airport over their involvement in attempted drug trafficking.

SaharaReporters exclusively revealed their arrest and detention on Sunday.

The NDLEA, in a statement issued by spokesperson Jonah Achema, said that in the past three months since the implementation of the Executive Order on Ease of Doing Business, the anti-narcotics agency has seized 2.575 kg of cocaine, 5.1 kg of heroin, 6.615 kg of methamphetamine, 73.44 kg of ephedrine, and 66.3 kg of cannabis.

Mr. Achema also confirmed that 19 suspects, including some staff of the two ground handling companies, have been arrested for drug trafficking over the past three months.

He added that the arrested staff of the ground handling companies confessed to collaborating with drug traffickers and that the agency is continuing to investigate the activities of the companies.

“There is an ongoing investigation into the suspicious drug activities of these so-called officials, including those of cargo handling companies at the airport. Several of such officers have been prosecuted and convicted in the past while some others are still being prosecuted by the agency on account of involvement in drug trafficking,” Mr. Achema said.

He insisted that the agency has never shielded any of its officials found to be involved in drug crime once there was established evidence of misconduct against them.

He also emphasized that through a mutually reinforcing relationship between the agency and the media, the fight against drug trafficking could be won.
