‘Science Students’ Use Noodles’ Cartons To Move Drugs In Mubi
Now that the government is trying to check the growing trend of drug abuse, 'science students' have devised means to move drugs from state to state.
With this new method, you will think they are carrying food items, but they are in fact moving drugs that people take to get high.
In Mubi, Adamawa State, the National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Adamawa Command, said it intercepted 1.31 tonnes of illicit drugs which were concealed in cartons of noodles.
The NDLEA’s state Commander, Mr Yakubu Kibo, who made the disclosure shortly after displaying the exhibits on Thursday in Yola, said the drugs were valued at 19 million Naira.
Kibo said that one suspect was arrested where the drugs were intercepted in Mubi.
“On February 7, 2018, a team of NDLEA operatives cordoned off one electronics shop opposite Mubi General Hospital.
“After thorough search, 183 cartons of Indomie noodles were discovered. The cartons were opened and they contained 1.316 tonnes of Tramadol 225 mg tablets, valued at N19 million.
“A suspect and owner of the shop was arrested in connection with the seized substances,” Kibo said.
The commander appealed to members of the public to join hands with the agency to curtail the menace of drug trafficking in the country.
