The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, has arrested
a suspected drug baron, Tochukwu Ubah, alleged to be coordinating a large
volume of methamphetamine and ephedrine distribution in the country.
This is contained in a statement issued by Mitchell Ofoyeju,
Head, Public Affairs, NDLEA, in Lagos on Sunday.
The statement said Mr. Ubah was arrested by the agency’s
Special Enforcement Team, SET, at the old local section of the Murtala Muhammed
Airport, Lagos upon arrival from Enugu.

“He was apprehended after intense undercover operations in
connection with illegal exportation of 576kgs of narcotics to Durban, South
Africa through Apapa Port.
“The drug made up of 266kg of methamphetamine and 310kgs of
ephedrine valued at N4.6 billion were hidden inside noodles, cereals and palm
oil,” it said.
According to the statement, preliminary investigations by
the NDLEA revealed that the suspect is also known as Etochukwu Alaek Weubah and
Eto Ubah.
It alleged that the 42-year-old had a company, Visoch
Resources Limited, which he used as a cover for his clandestine drug business.
The statement said: “Although the surveillance report
indicates that he is a major player in drug smuggling, Ubah hides under the
cover of floor tile business.
