Ndlea Parades A Church Administrator
In an attempt to export 283 parcels of skunk weighing 14.90 kilograms and 204 grams of methamphetamine hidden in four 25-liter kegs of palm oil for export to Dubai through the Nigerian Aviat, agents of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) have paraded the General Overseer of Seraphic and Sabbath Assembly, Lagos, the High Priest Nnodu Azuka Kenrick, a student of Emmanuel College of Theology
Following the arrest of Obasi and Udoka on Thursday, February 9, 2023 at the Lagos airport, Nnodu was taken into custody on Saturday, February 11, 2023 at his Seraphic and Sabbath Assembly church situated at 1, Sabbath Close in the Ijesha neighborhood of Lagos.
According to Femi Babafemi, director of media and advocacy at the NDLEA, Obasi accused the preacher and his kidnapped son Chisom Obi.
The monk and his son, according to Obasi, forced her to accept the position. She also claimed that Kenrich often referred to illegal narcotics in their phone calls and text messages as “Ice” and “Bible,” which are street names for methamphetamine and cannabis.
According to the NDLEA spokesman, Obasi was introduced to the theology student to help her as she was new to the industry. Udoka said he had to do the job because he needed the money for his schooling and was paid N2 million for the opportunity.
Nnamani Monday Innocent, a Dubai-returnee who had attempted to send a shipment of skunk and tramadol 225mg to the UAE, was arrested at the Trade Fair complex in Lagos’ Ojo neighborhood on February 7, 2023. He had gone there with his friend Nwanana Emmanuel Ikechukwu to take the shipment to a freight company so that it could be processed for export.
In a same vein, Skyway Aviation Handling Company Plc (SAHCO) personnel working with the NDLEA that day intercepted a shipment headed for London. Food items were included in the shipment, which was sent in a container with four walls meant to hide 1.10 kilos of methamphetamine. The freight agent, Agholor Emmanuel, who submitted the shipment for export was detained.
