LIBERIAN AUTHORITIES ARREST TWO NIGERIAN NATIONALS IN MAJOR DRUG BUST IN GRAND BASSA

Date:

In a significant bust, the Grand Bassa Detachment of the Liberia Drugs Enforcement Agency (LDEA) apprehended two Nigerian nationals for possession of a substantial quantity of illicit drugs.

The operation, which took place along Tubman Street, directly opposite the entrance of Bassa High School in Buchanan, unfolded early Sunday morning, June 9, 2024, following a tipoff received by the agency.

Commander Alfred Lackay of the Grand Bassa LDEA revealed that the agency swiftly acted on the intelligence, leading to the discovery of a stockpile of narcotic substances at the suspects’ residence.

He issued a stern warning to drug dealers in the county, urging them to cease their illegal activities immediately. Lackay emphasized the agency’s unwavering commitment to combatting the drug trade during his tenure as LDEA boss in the county.

The suspects, whose identities have not been disclosed, have remained tight-lipped since their arrest. They are currently detained pending prosecution at the Buchanan Magisterial Court within the stipulated forty-eight-hour period.

The nature of the illicit drugs, described as “kush” and powdery substances yet to be identified, underscores the severity of the narcotics trade in the county.

The arrest marks a significant victory for law enforcement in their ongoing battle against drug trafficking and abuse. Authorities continue to urge citizens to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity related to the illegal drug trade. Source: Ablee-Jay TV
