The Federal High Court in Lagos has ordered the remand of Azuka Ndujekwu, an importer accused of smuggling codeine and Tramadol into the country, in the custody of the Nigeria Customs Service.

The order was given by Justice Akintayo Aluko following an application seeking the defendant’s remand pending the completion of the investigation and prosecution.

The Nigeria Customs Service alleged that Ndujekwu illegally imported 10 cartons of Super Royal, 225 Tramadol, and 754 cartons of codeine, all of which are prohibited drugs.

The drugs were allegedly brought into the country in a single X40 feet container marked MRKU 553432\1. Ndujekwu is also accused of making a false declaration to Customs.
