 N14.7b Tramadol Destroys by Customs, NAFDAC

The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), in collaboration with the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), on Thursday destroyed tramadol and hard drugs valued at N14.7 billion.

The Assistant Comptroller of Customs in charge of Enforcement, Inspection and Investigation (E,I&I), Aminu Dahiru, who is the committee chairman on the occasion marking the joint destruction of the drugs, said the seizures would prevent crimes such as kidnapping, armed robbery, banditry and others threatening the peace and security of the country.

The exercise was witnessed by NAFDAC and ACG Dahiru, who lamented that the hard drugs would have caused damages if they had been allowed to enter the society via smuggling.
