The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, has burst a syndicate that specialised in importing cakes, biscuits and other confections (baked with drugs) for the rich in Lagos State, arresting the leader— Samuel Ebenezer.

NDLEA recorded the breakthrough when its operatives raided some drug spots in Agege, Ikorodu, Lekki, Okokomaiko and other parts of the state; dismantled major drug syndicates, arrested suspects and seized large quantities of hard drugs.
