The Agency’s Chairman, Mohammed Abdullahi, who announced this in a statement, says there are 11,785,800 tramadol tablets in 607 cartons in the seized container.
He says the seizure is the third 40 feet container to be intercepted by the NDLEA and police in Lagos within a month.
Last August 19, 255 cartons of different types of tramadol tablets were seized in another 40 feet container in Lagos.
Earlier, on August 6, the NDLEA chairman said police detectives intercepted another 40 feet container also in Lagos, loaded with tramadol and codeine.
