The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on Monday, discovered 13 million tramadol pills in a Lekki mansion in Lagos state.
NDLEA spokesperson, Femi Babafemi, confirmed the building is situated in Victoria Garden City (VGC).
According to Babafemi, the “massive and beautiful” building was used to “warehouse over 13 million pills of Tramadol 225mg” by a drug baron.
In a post on his Facebook page, Babafemi said the drug baron has been arrested and is now in the custody of the NDLEA.
The bust adds to the long list of successes recorded by the anti-drug agency in recent months.
On September 19, the NDLEA seized 1.8 tonnes of cocaine worth “N194 billion” in Lagos.
The drugs were discovered in a warehouse in the Ikorodu area of the state.
Babafemi had said the development “appears to be the biggest singular cocaine seizure” in the agency’s history.
