How NDLEA Tracked And Arresed Billionaire Drug Baron With 103 Bank Accounts Linked to Abba Kyari’s Team: The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency has released information about Chief Afam Ukatu’s arrest.

The millionaire allegedly orchestrated the N3 billion tramadol deal involving a suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police and former chief of the Intelligence Response Team, Abba Kyari, according to the NDLEA.

The agency has provided an update on how it tracked down and apprehended Ukatu.

Femi Babafemi, the agency’s spokeswoman, said in a statement on Monday that he was caught “after months of surveillance and eluding arrest.”

According to Babafemi, Ukatu, the head of the Mallinson Group of Companies, was apprehended on a flight to Abuja on Wednesday, April 13 at the MM2 terminal of the Lagos airport, Ikeja.

He said, “Investigations reveal he’s been a major importer of large consignments of different brands and high dosages of tramadol hydrochloride, ranging from 120mg, 200mg, 225mg and 250mg, all of which are illicit.

“Ukatu owns pharmaceutical and plastic manufacturing companies, which he used as a cover to import illicit drugs into Nigeria. This is in addition to operating 103 bank accounts, most of which are used to launder money.

“Ukatu came under watch last year after five cartons of tramadol 225mg were seized from his staff on May 4, 2021, when he sent them to sell to undercover police officers (unknown to Ukatu) from the then Kyari-led IRT of the Nigeria Police Force, Lagos State.

“The price of a carton of tramadol was negotiated at N17m each as against the then black market value that ranged between N18m and N20m a carton in Lagos.

“After the arrest of Ukatu’s staff — Pius Enidom and Sunday Ibekwete — Kyari’s men were then led by the suspects to Mallinson’s warehouse at Ojota in Lagos, where 197 additional cartons of tramadol 225mg were seized by the IRT team. The monetary value of the 202 cartons of tramadol seized from Mallinson in one day was over N3bn.

“Three weeks after the seizure, the Kyari’s IRT team transferred only 12 cartons of the tramadol with one truck and a suspect to the Lagos command of the NDLEA, leaving 190 cartons unaccounted for.

“After over eight months of following the lead, anti-narcotic officers of the agency arrested Ukatu at the Lagos airport on April 13, 2022.

“Kyari and four top members of his team are already facing trial for a different but similar offense at a Federal High Court in Abuja.”

It is appalling that they will find such a decorated officer like Kyari with such stains. May justice prevail.
