    NDLEA Intercepts 56.2kg of Heroin in Lagos

    He commended the U. K. authorities for supplying the intelligence that led to the first seizure and promised to sustain and strengthen the agreement. "I am pleased with the tremendous success in our foreign collaboration. Our relation with the UK under the Operation West Bridge has been quite exceptional and will be sustained. The more united law enforcement agencies are, the more disunited drug cartels will become" Giade declared.

    The first consignment was sent through Emirate cargo flight number EK 783 with airway bill number 176-1360 5561 on November 20, 2009. A total of 120 pieces of heroin weighing 28kilogrammes were found hidden inside car shock absorbers packed in three wooden crates.
