Stephen Afam Ikeanyionwu, a drug dealer, wanted in the United Kingdom for attempting to export 69.65 kilograms of cocaine, heroin, and cannabis, has been apprehended.
The suspect attempted to transport the drugs through the Murtala Muhammed International Airport’s NAHCO export shed in Lagos.
NDLEA agents tracked him down to Mike Ajari Street in Ojodu Berger, where he attended a popular pentecostal church.
After leaving the church service, Stephen was picked up.
On Thursday, August 12th, 2021, he was apprehended after a shipment of illegal drugs bound for the United Kingdom was intercepted in Lagos.
The luggage had been sent to the NAHCO export shed by a freight forwarding company, which had transferred it to the airport for export.
Following his arrest, investigations revealed the identity of the consignment’s true owner, Stephen.
Three days after the driver’s confession, the dealer was apprehended in a sting operation.
