340 million tablets of Tramadol uncovered at Lagos port

Imported from India, over 340 million tablets of Tramadol stashed in 12 containers at the Apapa Port in Lagos, has been intercepted by National Drug Law Enforcement Agency. The tablets, which were in various dosages ranging from 120 to 250 milligrams, were recovered from 12 containers.

“These containers, which have been on the watch list of the NDLEA since November, 2017, were brought to the attention of the Nigeria Customs Service to be positioned for search based on the agency’s reasonable suspicion of the containers containing Tramadol.”

NDLEA seized in a single operation in November last year 160 million Tramadol tablets at the Apapa Port.

The drugs were said to have been imported from India, with the importers using false documents and the name of an unregistered company.

The importation of Tramadol into the country was for illicit purposes, adding that the nation did not need the high volume of the opiate being brought in.

“It is doubtful that this influx of Tramadol is for legitimate uses; Tramadol, which is a derivative of opiate, is for post-surgery application; but even if everybody in Nigeria undergoes surgery every year, we do not need the quantity that enters our country. It only suggests its diversion for illicit use
