NDLEA arrests Britain’s most wanted fire arms, drug suspect

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on Friday said that it had arrested Britain’s most wanted fire arms and drug suspect.

A statement issued by the Chairman of the agency, Alhaji Ahmed Giade, said the suspect was arrested on Sept. 13, in Lagos.

The statement said the suspected fugitive, was apprehended by officers of the Joint Task Force (JTF) of the NDLEA during an intensive manhunt for him around the country.

“The NDLEA has a statutory mandate to partner with other countries and International organisations in the global fight against illicit drugs.
“We shall continue to partner with all stakeholders in the drive to halt the trade in narcotics as the country is not a safe haven for drug barons,” it said.

The statement also quoted the commander of the JTF, Mr Sunday Zirangey, who coordinated the operations, as saying that preliminary investigation had commenced into the incident and that additional information was being gathered and processed on the suspect.

“The suspect, an indigene of the Lancaster area, in the UK, is wanted by the Operation Greengage Team for his alleged involvement in the importation of cocaine, cannabis, firearms and ammunition into the U.K. from Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

“A European arrest warrant was issued in May 2008 because it was believed that he had links with the Netherlands,’’ it said.

The statement quoted the Lancashire Constabulary Police, as saying after the arrest, that the suspect would be extradited to face criminal charges in the U.K.  (NAN)

A campaign launched by crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers to locate some of Britain’s most wanted fugitives in Amsterdam has seen further success following the arrest of an individual believed to be Dion Kendrick Lee [15 September 2011]

Close cooperation between UK and Nigerian Authorities led to the arrest of Lee on Tuesday 13th September in an operation conducted by the Nigerian National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).

Lee, from Preston, was wanted by Lancashire Police and the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) in connection with drugs and firearms crimes, as well as allegedly conspiring to supply Class A and C Drugs and conspiracy to possess, sell or transfer firearms and ammunition.

He was located on Tuesday 13 September in Lagos under an international arrest warrant.

The 34-year-old becomes the fourth individual to be located since the charity’s Operation Return campaign launched last year with SOCA, Meld Misdaad Anoniem/’M’ (Dutch Crimestoppers) and Netherlands law enforcement. It aims to identify fugitives wanted for serious crimes committed in the UK, but who are now thought to be in and around the city of Amsterdam.

Deputy Chief Executive for Crimestoppers, Dave Cording, said: “This is encouraging news and highlights another success under Operation Return.
