The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has commended Red Star Express Plc, one of Nigeria’s foremost logistics solutions providers, for its collaboration, professionalism, as well as the synergies with NDLEA officers posted to the establishment to ensure that every package passing through the system is without drugs or any counterfeit item.
In a special message to the company, the Deputy Director, Operations and General Investigation, Ulo Okon, on behalf of the NDLEA, proclaimed that co-operation from Red Star Express Plc resulted to a great number of seizures of hard drugs.
“I must confess that your support and assistance, in respect of this, is very wonderful and has resulted to a great number of seizures of hard drugs, fake documents, passports as well as fake travelers cheques; both in regular searches and controlled delivery process. The Agency is proud to be associated with Red Star Express Plc and further wishes that this collaboration will be part and parcel of the system culture,” Okon said.
NDLEA stated that thirty-three (33) seizures were recorded and comprised of cannabis, cocaine, Methamphetamine, fake passports, ATM cards, travellers cheques and money orders; adding that these items were intercepted and seized at Red Star Express office.
The seizures further led to controlled package deliveries in Enugu, Abuja, Ibadan, and various locations within Lagos where eight persons were arrested and are now facing trial.
