Along with marijuana, cocaine, and heroin, we can now add crystal meth to the list of drugs that can be found in Lagos. The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency on Thursday said it had discovered an illegal methamphetamine laboratory in Lagos.
Ofoyeju stated that the laboratory was discovered at Shapeti, off the Lekki-Epe Expressway, in Lagos and mentioned that it was the 6th lab uncovered in Lagos over the past couple of years.
“This development is highly injurious to public health and safety. The lab is located at Rock of Ages Crèche Nursery and Primary School and the Regal Gems International School. The building used for the illegal production has been sealed by the NDLEA. Methamphetamine weighing 31.7kg was also recovered from the laboratory.”
The NDLEA spokes person said that a 38 year old Nigerian-South African has been arrested in connection to the lab. A vehicle belonging to the suspect has been impounded.
“The owner of a transport company in South Africa is currently being investigated by the Agency over the incident,” the statement said.
