The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), has detained 12 dockworkers at the Apapa seaport in Lagos, following an alleged link to the importation of 32.9 kilograms of cocaine worth over N9.5 billion in street value.

NDLEA disclosed this on Saturday November 13, revealing that a Federal High Court in Lagos granted its application for the interim attachment of a vessel MV Chayanee Naree used to import the 32.9 kilograms of cocaine into Nigeria through the Apapa seaport.

The court also granted NDLEA’s request to detain the Master of the ship, Mr. Tanahan Krilerk and 21 foreign crew members as well as the dockworkers arrested in connection to the case.

The anti-narcotic Agency was said to have intercepted the ship on October 13 at the Apapa seaport, following intelligence from international partners and support from other security forces such as the Nigerian Navy, Customs, DSS and the police. A thorough search of the ship led to the recovery of 30 parcels containing cocaine, which weighed 32.9kg.

The agency first filed an application to detain those arrested on Thursday 28th October, and it was granted the following day Friday 29th October by Hon. Justice A.O. Awogboro.NDLEA KOKO TV NG 1

An application to renew the remand order was also filed on Friday 12th November because of the volume of evidence coming out from the cooperation of the suspects in custody.

The NDLEA which revealed that it had to make a clarification following claims by the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria that some of its members are being detained unlawfully by the Agency, added that out of the total number of 18 dockworkers initially being interviewed by operatives, six of them with no sufficient evidence linking them to the crime had been released while 12 others with significant links are cooperating with ongoing investigation.

In line with the intelligence available to the Agency, there is a syndicate of dockworkers, crew members with apparent international conspirators who work in synergy to traffic in the illicit substances.

The NDLEA also said that while the substances are concealed in the shipment from the originating Port, the dockworkers assist to pick up the illicit consignment for onward delivery to the Nigerian drug barons.

The agency said in a statement; “In the case of criminal investigation of this magnitude, it is lawful and expedient to investigate those within the purview of the Agency’s reasonable suspicion and those who do not have any serious involvement are let go.

“Already, two dockworkers are now on the run, after absconding from their place of work, since the beginning of the investigation.

“For the avoidance of doubt, all the Agency’s actions are guided by international best practices and in line with the Global Maritime Standard Operational Procedure on arrest, seizure and detention of Vessels and crew members.”NDLEA 2

Quavo And Jayda Cheaves Respond After Social Media Pins Lil Baby As Saweetie’s Mystery Bae

Published

on

Saweetie, Lil Baby, Jayda Cheaves and Quavo were the stars of a lil’ tea party on Sunday evening. And the refreshments served by social media users, and later the celebrities themselves, was definitely piping hot. The tea party kicked off with an Instagram post by Saweetie and ended with Lil Baby dropping a harsh message on Twitter. Let’s get into it, chile…

Saweetie Posts Mystery Bae 

Early Sunday, Saweetie shared the moment dozens of roses were delivered to her. She appeared to be at a recording studio, but didn’t share any details or words about the sweet gesture.

A few hours later, the ‘Icy’ rapper posted a photo dump on Instagram. The carousel-type post featured selfies, moments with fans, bawdy-ody-ody shots and a Chanel purse sitting on a piano. However, it was the last flick of the slider that put social media detectives to work! Saweetie snapped a mirror selfie that captured her sitting on the lap of a mystery bae. Almost immediately, social sites exploded with users giving their theories on who the partially hidden person could be.

Social Users Name Lil Baby 

From Nigerian artist Olamide to 42 Dugg, the guesses kept rolling in. Then, a post on Lil Baby’s official Facebook account painted another picture. Apparently, Lil Baby recently wore dark pants and black shoes that match those seen on Saweetie’s mystery boo. The Facebook post is dated November 18 with the caption “It’s only a handful of real ones, people be corny.” It features a still photo and a video of Baby showing off his drip in a mirror. The video’s caption reads “It’s a cold cold world.” As expected, social media users put two and two together–down to the accents on the shoes and pants. The side-by-side comparison quickly went viral.

Lil Baby Deletes A Tweet 

As online users discussed the assumed pair, Lil Baby took some time to clean up his Twitter account. Just days ago, he told fans “Baby not dating NO ONE” on Twitter. He also confirmed his bachelor status saying “I’m single.” But, in the midst of this rumored romance exploding on Sunday night, the tweet disappeared.

Quavo Enters The Chat 

After about an one hour of sipping this tea, Quavo let his feelings about the situation be known. He wrote “Ain’t trippin we can swap it out #QCTheLabel” on his Instagram Story. While Quavo didn’t mention names, users ran with the idea that he was speaking on Jayda Cheaves. Jayda, as you may know, is Lil Baby’s ex-girlfriend. She shares a toddler son named Loyal with the rapper.

Hey Jayda GWORL! 

Moments after The Shade Room posted Quavo’s message on Instagram, Jayda popped up on the page. Apparently, she liked and then unliked ... featuring Quavo’s suggestion. Afterwards, Quavo’s sister decided to add her two cents by reposting a photo of Jayda to her Instagram Story.

Later in the evening, Jayda hopped on her Instagram Story with a jokey joke. She posted a photo of her trending status on Twitter and wrote “I ain’t even do bun.” Jayda also included a GIF reaction of a woman eating popcorn.

Lil Baby Speaks 

Hours after social media users pinned him as mystery boo, Lil Baby said his piece. The Atlanta artist hopped on Twitter and let off two thoughts while keeping his words name-free.

“B****es really be weird,” Lil Baby tweeted. He continued on in a separate post saying, “If you want clout use BABY.”

And to wrap things up, at some point throughout the entire fiasco, Saweetie reposted her carousel of images. The second time around mystery man, who is presumably Lil Baby, was not included. Whew, what a party! *sips tea*
