OFFICIALS of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) yesterday arrested a Bureau de Change operator and five other suspected money laundering syndicate members for allegedly swallowing $156,000 at Excel Oriental Hotel along Airport Road, Lagos.

The suspects were arrested at the hotel while they were busy swallowing the large sums of money with the intention of exporting the said amount of money to Brazil.

Speaking on the arrest, Chairman of NDLEA, Ahmadu Giade, said the suspects had been apprehended in connection with swallowing $156,000.

Giade, who promised to track down smuggled narcotics and currency, warned that operators of bureau de change who fail to work within the confines of the law establishing them would be severely sanctioned, adding: “The agency will continue to rely on manpower training and intelligence-led drug control strategies to out-wit criminal syndicates.”

We shall take reasonable measures to dislodge drug cartels and eradicate narcotics from our society. Any bureau de change operator that violates the law shall be punished accordingly.”
