Some of the heroin caught by the LRAThe Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA) has seized 2 kilograms of heroin brought into the country on an Arik Air flight from Nigeria, according to an LRA press release. The value of the heroin was not stated.The bag containing the heroin was sent to Achebe Joseph Uwadioma (AKA, Don Joe), a Nigerian national who operates a business at Waterside and Mechlin Street.The suspicious package was mixed with other foodstuffs to conceal its identity and was being cleared by Mr. Uwadioma’s broker only identified as Lincoln.The heroine was detected by an officer of Customs Anti-Smuggling and Intelligence Section (ASIS) of the LRA. The seizure is an outcome of a rigorous risk-based compliance examination being undertaken by the LRA on cargo entering Liberia through the RIA.The LRA, upon seizing the bag of heroin, turned it over to the Liberia Drugs Enforcement Agency (LDEA) for testing and it was confirmed by LDEA that the consignment was heroin. It was also further confirmed by the Liberia National Police Lab as positive for heroin.LRA Commissioner General Elfrieda Stewart Tamba said the LRA, in pursuance of its statutory responsibility to collect lawful revenue, will collaborate with all relevant agencies in preventing the inflow of illicit drugs through Liberia’s ports of entries.CG Tamba has, meanwhile, thanked the LRA Customs Officer and the other agencies for their swift collaboration. It may be recalled that Customs, sometime ago, also seized counterfeit Liberian dollars that were smuggled through the Bo Waterside Land Port, concealed in a television set.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
