The Nigerian Customs Service has intercepted containers of tramadol worth N5 billion in Lagos.

The Spokesman for the service, Joseph Attah, confirmed this to journalists at the Customs Training College on Friday.



According to him, the containers of tramadol and other drugs, were smuggled in during the recent Eid-El-Kabir celebrations, as the perpetrators tried to take advantage of the holidays.

This comes barely three weeks after officials of the service destroyed over 50 containers of tramadol and other drugs worth about N7billion.
