The agency’s spokesman, Femi Babafemi, said in a statement yesterday that 14,080kg of codeine syrup and 4,352.43kg of cold caps used to conceal the drugs in a 40-foot container imported from India were intercepted on February 2 at the Apapa port.

Also, cannabis imported from Ghana and 3,727.72kg of methamphetamine were seized in an early morning raid at Akala where 17 suspects including five females were arrested on February 3, the spokesman said.
