Court Orders Destruction Of 14 Containers Of Tramadol by MediahelmNGR: 7:18am On Dec 05
The Nigeria Customs Service on Tuesday secured an order of the Federal High Court in Lagos to destroy 14 containers loaded with Tramadol, which were seized from smugglers.

The order followed an ex parte application taken before Justice Saliu Saidu by the agency.

The counsel for the Customs, Mr Bisi Ogunlowo, explained to the court that the banned drug consignments were intercepted between February and September this year by the NCS operatives on duty at the Apapa Wharf, Lagos.

He said the 14 containers of the banned drug were abandoned by the smugglers, who fled upon being accosted for checks.

He added that since the confiscation of the consignments, no one had come forward to lay claim to the containers.

Ogunlowo said a search by officials at the court’s registry revealed that there were no pending lawsuits against the NCS in respect of any of the consignments.

He, therefore, urged Justice Saidu to authorise the Customs to destroy the banned drug consignments pursuant to sections 167 and 169 (1), Schedule 3 of the Nigeria Customs Services Management Act Cap. C. 45 of the Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.

In granting the prayer, the judge held, “I have listened to the submission of the counsel as well as gone through the affidavit in support of the application and the written address and the attached exhibits.

“The application is hereby granted as prayed.”

Why waste so much resources when it can generate some revenue.
As far as I know, a sachet now goes between 900-2000. Imagine how much food it will put on tables.

For the least amount, there could be 100satchets in a carton (900*100)= 90000 per carton.
Shït!!!!!

The Colombian government were not stupid enough to set Pablo escobar's cash in flame.

This is wrong and unjustifiable; Tramadol isn't a banned drug.
Must Nigeria throw the baby away with dirty bath water?

This is somebody's hard-earned funds being destroyed.
Imagine the number of hospitals that have been deprived of this supply by this myopic decision.

It's not like all of this drug was going to be channeled to addicts.
I will never endorse drug-abuse.
But this action will cause scarcity of this drug which will inevitably jack up it's price thereby making it uncomfortable to those who truly need it.

The dosage of the illegal tablets are usually too high for medical use. The normal medical dose is 50mg. We have illegal tablets as high as 500mg! What will be medical use of such?
