NDLEA RECOVERS N22BILLION COSIGNMENT OF ILLICIT DRUGS FROM KYARI, UKATU SYNDICATE

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, has revealed that an ongoing investigation of an alleged billionaire drug baron, Chief Afam Mallinson Ukatu, has led to the discovery of how the suspect imported into Nigeria in a single month, October 2019, two containers containing 1,284 cartons of Tramadol with market value of over N22billion.

The Agency disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday by its Director, Media & Advocacy, Femi Babafemi to counter insinuations by some hirelings that NDLEA has no evidence to pin a crime on Ukatu, who is the Chairman/CEO of Mallinson Group of companies.

According to him, after months of surveillance, Ukatu was eventually arrested on board a flight to Abuja at the MM2 terminal of the Lagos airport, Ikeja on Wednesday 13th April.

The Agency said in the course of investigating the N3billion Tramadol saga between Ukatu and the Abba Kyari’s IRT team, its operatives have unearthed more evidences establishing how Ukatu has been importing large quantities of Tramadol far above the approved threshold allowed into the country.

The statement added that the suspect will soon have his day in court.
