The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency has arrested a billionaire drug baron behind the N3billion Tramadol deal involving the embattled suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari-led Intelligence Response Team, Chief Afam Mallinson Emmanuel Ukatu.

 

The anti-narcotic agency said Ukatu arrest followed months of surveillance and evasion of arrest. Ukatu, who is Chairman of Mallinson Group of Companies, was arrested onboard a flight to Abuja at the MM2 terminal of the Lagos airport, Ikeja on Wednesday 13th April.

 

The NDLEA spokesperson, Femi Babafemi, disclosed this in a statement on Monday, titled, ‘NDLEA arrests drug baron behind N3billion Tramadol linked to Abba Kyaris team’.

Babafemi said investigations revealed that the suspect is a major importer of large consignments of different brands and high dosages of Tramadol Hydrochloride.

 

According to him, the Tramadol ranging from 120mg, 200mg, 225mg and 250mg are illicit. He added that Ukatu owns pharmaceutical and plastic manufacturing companies, which he used as a cover to import illicit drugs into Nigeria.

 

The statement read, “This is in addition to operating 103 bank accounts, most of which are used to launder money.

 

“Ukatu came under watch last year after five cartons of Tramadol 225mg were seized from his staff on 4th May 2021 when he sent them to sell to undercover police officers (unknown to Ukatu) from the then Kyari-led IRT of the Nigeria Police, Ikeja Lagos. The price of a carton of Tramadol was negotiated at N17million each as against the then black market value that ranged between N18million and N20million a carton in Lagos.

“After the arrest of Ukatu’s staff: Pius Enidom and Sunday Ibekwete, Kyari’s men were then led by the suspects to Mallinson’s warehouse at Ojota in Lagos where 197 additional Cartons of Tramadol 225mg were seized by the IRT Team. The monetary value of the 202 cartons of Tramadol seized from Mallinson in one day was over N3billion.

 

“Three weeks after the seizure, the Kyari’s IRT team transferred only 12 Cartons of the Tramadol with one truck and a suspect to the Lagos Command of the NDLEA, leaving 190 cartons unaccounted for.

 

“After over eight months of following the lead, anti-narcotic officers of the Agency eventually arrested Ukatu at the Lagos airport on 13th April 2022. Kyari and four top members of his team are already facing trial for a different but similar offence at a Federal High Court in Abuja.”

Primate Ayodele’s Prophecy On South East Presidency Continues To Come To Pass

Published

on

 

In the history of Nigeria, the south east zone has never produced a president and there have been clamours by different politicians, groups, individuals for a south east presidency at least in 2023 in order to balance the equation of leadership in the country.

 

As a result of this clamours, terrorist group, IPOB was birthed with a mission to disembark the Igbos from Nigeria if they fail to get the presidency in 2023. The founder of the group, Nnamdi Kanu has been arrested ever since the organization started cursing crisis in the country.

 

Since IPOB failed, popular politicians from the south east zone joined the ruling party; All Progressive Congress in order to get a chance at the presidency in 2023 since it’s very likely that the ruling party retains the seat of the presidency coupled with the fact that President Muhammadu Buhari will not be contesting again.

 

The clamour for the South East presidency became stronger when they joined the ruling party, and even other Igbo politicians at opposition parties pushed for the South east presidency but in the midst of these clamours, a popular prophet, Primate Elijah Ayodele in May 2021 categorically stated that the Igbos cannot produce the next president of Nigeria in 2023.

 

These were his words:

 

‘’ ….So I am telling you that the 2023 presidency will elude the Igbo, mark my words; if they are looking for the presidency maybe they will wait for another time. The pendulum is not swinging towards the Igbos.’’ (https://dailypost.ng/2021/05/07/2023-presidency-will-elude-ndigbo-primate-ayodele/

 

Again in October 2021, Primate Ayodele reinstated his prophecy on presidency eluding igbos, and adding that the south east politicians will betray each other and not get presidency in 2023.

 

These were his words:

 

‘’Don’t blame any group for the killings in the South-East, rather blame bad governance. The South East political leaders are betrayals of trust, that’s why they won’t get the presidency.’’ (https://dailypost.ng/2021/10/11/2023-southeast-wont-get-presidency-igbo-politicians-are-betrayals-primate-ayodele/)

 

Later in April 2022, Primate Ayodele spoke about the issue of Igbo Presidency and stated that the igbos deserve to produce the next president of Nigeria for peace to reign in the country but there is no south east politician that is fit for the seat. He then mentioned that if they don’t work together and allow the presidency to elude them in 2023, they will forever live to regret it.

 

These were his words:

 

‘’Sincerely, without mincing words, the next president should come from Igbo, it’s just unfortunate that they are not that serious with their intentions because there is a political force struggling with it which they need to claim otherwise if it eludes them now, Igbo will never see presidency till kingdom comes.Igbo must wake up now, otherwise, they will betray themselves from producing the next president of Nigeria. The South and North should step down for Igbo, let them be used as consensus candidates. This can happen if the Igbo know what they want but do they really know what they want?

 

As it stands now, all hopes to get the south east presidency seems to be getting lost as the day goes by. Primate Ayodele spoke about betrayal of trust among Igbo politicians last year. This was obviously mirrored when Orji Uzor Kalu, a foremost aspirant for Igbo presidency stepped down to support senate president, Ahmed Lawan who is a northerner knowing fully well that the Igbos need and deserves the presidential seat.

 

Another hope of the Igbos in the ruling party is Senator Rochas Okorocha who bought the presidential form under the APC, with the hope that he would be screened on Sunday, 29th of May, 2022 but unfortunately, he was arrested by the EFCC two days ago and will be in their custody till Monday, which means he has automatically being screened out of the race.

 

In the opposition party, Peter Obi seem to be the voice of the Igbos in the race, he bought the PDP form and has gotten several supporters ever since. Suddenly, he resigned from the PDP yesterday and from the presidential race, hoping to go to another party to pursue his ambition.

 

It is a known fact that PDP is still the strongest opposition in the country, if anyone is to contest an election against the ruling party, it has to be PDP but Peter Obi left there, ruling out his chances in the presidential race.

 

Considering these analysis, it’s obvious the South East won’t get the presidency in 2023, confirming Primate Ayodele’s prophecy.
