NDLEA intercepts 399 Kaduna-bound explosives, military detain suspect

No fewer than 399 pieces of Improvised Explosive Devices were recovered by operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency from one Asana Leke, 39, along the Mokwa-Jebba road on Thursday, September 7.

The suspect, who said the explosives were handed to him at a park in Ibadan, Oyo State, to be delivered to someone in Kaduna State, has since, alongside the exhibits, been transferred to the military authorities in Niger State.

NDLEA spokesperson, Femi Babafemi, made the development known on Sunday.

He also noted that NDLEA operatives intercepted consignments of skunk concealed in tomato pastes, and methamphetamine hidden in used clothes, meant for export to Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.
