Mr Bashir said the suspect who hails from Enugu State was arrested in his residence with the first consignment of drugs.

“As usual, we didn’t just stop there, we continued with our investigations.

“We also found some of the drugs in his vehicle.

“We did a follow up operation and got his Toyota Sienna vehicle and recovered more of the exhibit.

“It will interest you to know that this person is also a spare parts dealer, as we speak to you, we actually sealed his shop because we believe that the proceed of drugs is what he uses to run his business,” he said.

He said the NDLEA sealed the suspect’s shop for further investigations and prosecution.
