Justice Okon Abang
 
Four members of staff of the Nigerian Aviation Handling Company (NAHCO) have been sent to Kuje Prison by Justice Okon Abang, according to the Vanguard.
 
They were remanded after they pleaded not guilty to a charge of aiding and abetting the exportation of 144 kgs of ephedrine to Mozambique.
 
The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) filed the charge against the officials after a failed attempt to export the drug to Maputo, Mozambique at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport (NAIA) Abuja. 
 
The Chief Security Supervisor of NAHCO, Mr. Audu Garba, two security assistants, Nasiru Ibrahim and Haruna Abdullahi, and a load controller, Victor Ahenje who is at large were arraigned before Justice Abang but they all pleaded not guilty. The case was however adjourned till 9 January next year for hearing.
 
All the accused will remain in custody till then, thereby spending the yuletide in jail. According to the charge, the said NAHCO staff who are in charge of cargo safety and security conspired with suspected drug trafficking syndicate in swapping already screened consignments by security agencies at the airport with similar packages that contained narcotics.
 
The agency stated that the illicit action of the group was uncovered following an intelligence report. In the course of investigation, the Agency extended its search by inviting a number of airport officials suspected to be involved in the incident for interrogation. While others were cleared, five staff of NAHCO including a load controller who is at large were found to be seriously indicted.
 
These staff were deliberately working to undermine security measures at the airport by swapping already screened cargoes with similar consignment that had been stuffed with narcotics.
 
The Chief Security Supervisor, Mr. Audu Garba was also identified as the suspected master mind of this high level conspiracy. Others are two security assistants, Nasiru Ibrahim and Haruna Abdullahi, a driver, Adamu Dasura as well as a load controller, Victor Ahenje who is at large.
 
It was disclosed that the defendants were taking undue advantage of their position and privilege by deploying the official vehicle of NAHCO in the said act of sabotage.
