32.9kg Cocaine Seizure: Court Grants NDLEA’s Request To Attach Ship, Detain 29 Suspects

A Federal High Court in Lagos has granted the application by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, for the interim attachment of a vessel MV Chayaneenaree used to import 32.9 kilograms of cocaine into Nigeria through the Apapa Seaport in Lagos, IgbereTV reports.

NDLEA spokesman, Femi Babafemin noted in a statement on Sunday that besides the attachment order, the court also granted NDLEAs request to detain the master of the ship, Mr. Tanahan Krilerk, and 21 foreign crewmembers as well as seven Nigerians arrested in connection to the case.

The anti-narcotic agency had on October 13 intercepted the ship at the Apapa Seaport following intelligence from international partners and support from other security forces such as the Nigerian Navy, Customs, DSS, and the police.

A thorough search of the ship led to the recovery of 30 parcels containing cocaine which weighed 32.9kg.
