The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has arrested a transborder drug trafficker, Nkem Timothy.

Timothy alias Auwalu Audu was arrested in Sokoto State while trying to cross to Algeria, where he resides, through the Niger Republic.

He was caught with 62 wraps of the substance of cocaine weighing 1.550kg.

The illicit drug was neatly concealed inside yogurt bottles, with a street value of N1billion.

Sokoto Commander, Bamidele Segun, disclosed that the suspect was intercepted on a motorcycle around the baggage area at the Illela border.

“He was found with an ECOWAS passport with a different name written as Auwalu Audu but he gave his real name as Nkem Timothy.

“This is a groundbreaking feat for us. Seizure of this magnitude of type A drug (cocaine) has never been made in Sokoto Command before”, he said.

Segun added that officers had commenced further investigation to unravel his sponsor and other members of the drug cartel.

Similarly, the Adamawa Command arrested one Umar Mohammed with 82 blocks of Cannabis Sativa weighing 70kg at Lafiya Lamurde area.

NDLEA Chairman, Buba Marwa, commended the commands. He charged them and all units nationwide to remain vigilant.
