Undisclosed N3 billion worth of Tramadol
The sources said also said that the seized consignment which was worth N3 billion was imported into Nigeria by a yet to be named individual who claimed to be a pharmacist.
Investigations showed that the Intelligence Response Team led by Kyari got wind of the consignment and closed in on the importers at their warehouse where the drug was stored.
After seizing the goods, Kyari and his team failed to inform the NDLEA of the development.
The source said:
“What this means is that the IRT may have sold the consignment of Tramadol to a cartel after storming the Amuwo Odofin warehouse and seizing the Tramadol."
“We have launched a probe into the case with a view to getting to the root of the matter."
