Two men arrested for concealing hemps in cartons of crayfish


Two suspects, Abdullahi Ismail and Valentine Malizu have been arrested by the men of the Seme Area Command of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) for being in possession of 40 wraps of substances suspected to be Indian hemps concealed inside cartons of crayfish.

The seized drugs weighed about 43.4 kilogrammes with a value of N412, 300.

The suspects, who were also found to be in possession of over nine different SIM cards and assorted charms, have since been handed over to officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).

According to a statement signed by the Spokesman of the Seme Area Command of the NCS, S.K Taupyen, “The seizure was made possible by the Border Patrol Crack Team ‘A’ led by CSC Ozah M.O. After the suspects were arrested, they attempted to bribe the Border Patrol Officers, but their overtures were resisted.”

The suspects have been handed over by the Area Controller, Seme Customs Command, Comptroller Dimka V. David to the Senior Narcotics officer of the NDLEA, Idris, D.U who represented the Commander of the NDLEA, Seme.

After the handing over, the CS C reiterated that the tempo of aggressive patrol within the border would be sustained by his vigilant officers and warned that all those involved in trans-border crimes should desist from the act or they will continue to face the full wrath of the law.

The NDLEA authority said that scientific analysis of the illicit drugs and the subsequent prosecution of the suspects in court will be the next line of action.
