The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has said it had busted a crystal methamphetamine (Mkpuru Mmiri) lab in the Victoria Garden City (VGC) Estate of Lekki, Lagos.

A document had been circulating online about the discovery, drawing surprise from many netizens.

VGC is one of the affluent estates that dot Lagos State.

Chairman and Chief Executive of NDLEA, Mohamed Buba Marwa, while speaking in a press conference said another meth lab had also been busted in Anambra.

Marwa said following the outbreak of crystal methamphetamine abuse in the last quarter of 2021, predominantly in the South East and the cry for help from many communities in the region because of the devastating effects the distribution and abuse of the dangerous stimulant drug were having on their youths and others, the Agency deployed all available assets to find the primary source of manufacturing of the drug in Nigeria and arrest the barons behind it.

“I am pleased to inform the public today that, after months of painstaking intelligence gathering, diligent tracking and coordinated offensive action, we recorded a breakthrough on Saturday, July 30, 2022, when officers and men of the Agency successfully busted two methamphetamine manufacturing facilities, called Meth Laboratories.
