Suspect conceals heroin in TV transformers

A suspected drug trafficker Raphael Akachi was recently arrested after his temporary residence at Amuwo-Odofin was raided by officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency. Akachi had hidden 29.4 grammes of heroin in television transformers
. The drugs were to be taken to China where Akachi resides with his Chinese fiancée.

NDLEA Lagos commander, Aliyu Sule confirmed the arrest. He said, “Akachi is an experienced hand in drug trafficking; he has established links with drug trafficking syndicates in China. We were lucky to have raided his apartment while he was processing the drugs for export. Akachi gets his supplies from Pakistan and smuggles same to China. During the operation, his Liberty Jeep was confiscated and investigation is ongoing.”

An alleged graduate of Anwaru Islam College, Agege, Akachi, who hails from Anambra state, was, prior to his arrest, making the final preparations to formalize his union with his Chinese fiancée.

 “I take my time in concealing small quantities of Pakistani heroin in television transformers and fix them back into the power packs; I am not greedy for money. I regret my actions now and pray that my Chinese fiancé will understand and find a place in her heart to forgive me,” the 30- year- old suspect said.

Commending the arrest, the Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of the NDLEA, Ahmadu Giade, said, “The concealment was near perfect as it is unimaginable for drugs to be hidden inside transformers of television power packs. It was a sophisticated mode of operation. All drug traffickers irrespective of the quantity are enemies of the state and the agency is determined to dislodge them.”
