A Nigerian pastor, John Arinze, has been arrested by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, for trafficking drug worth N1.4bn to South Africa.

The drugs comprises of 92kgs of methamphetamine and 73kgs of ephedrine. They were detected inside two containers of foodstuff meant for export to South Africa at the Apapa Seaport in Lagos.

According to a statement from NDLEA spokesperson, Mitchell Ofoyeju, John has confessed to his crimes.

John himself said he is a Nigerian based in South Africa.

“I am an evangelist living in Durban South Africa. My late wife was into drug trafficking before she died few years ago. I made a mistake venturing into her business. It is my fault,” he was quoted as saying.

According to the statement, the Chairman/Chief Executive of NDLEA, Col. Muhammad Abdallah (retd.) said the seizure would have a positive influence on the campaign against narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances in the country.
