According to the LDEA, Azubwke Okolie, Ugo Chukwu, Okcchikwo Okonkwo, Offerdile Ezekiel Onyemaechi and Chindu Tobias all Nigerians were arrested over the weekend with over 66grams of heroin and 1kilogram of marijuana in Logan Town during the agency’s usual patrol to make Liberia a drug free society.

The street value of the seized drugs is put at a little over LRD 2million or US$14705.88.00.

Those Nigerians have been charged for being in possession of illegal substances and awaiting court trial.

Illegal substances on the Liberian market continues to pose a threat to the nation’s youthful population.

The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) is an agency within the Liberian government charged with fighting drug-related crimes. Before its creation, fighting drug crimes was a responsibility of the Ministry of Defense.

The agency began as the National Drug Committee of the Interim Government of National Unity; it was created in 1993 during the presidency of Amos Sawyer. Five years later, the committee was converted into its present form: President Taylor signed a Bill passed by the National Legislature that created the DEA and patterned it after the Drug Enforcement Administration in the United States.

The DEA is charged with fighting drug trafficking at the country’s borders, arresting traffickers and dealers, and destroying illegal drugs.
