Aviation Police, security agencies arrest 2 drug dealers for drug trafficking

KAMPALA- Aviation Police and sister security agencies have arrested two drug dealers, who were set to deliver narcotic drugs to Cameroon and India.

It’s alleged that on August 28th 2020 at about 1400 hours at NAS Export bonds at Entebbe International Airport in Wakiso District, one Mugabi Azaria of Sky Net Worldwide Express Courier Company took cargo for export under Master Airway to the Xray machine for security screening.

In the process of screening, Police Anti-Narcotics officers intercepted two packages of house Airway each containing cream powdered substances suspected to be narcotic drugs concealed in their false bottoms.

The shippers for the packages respectively were Nannono Lydia and Nakawooya Juliet according to the documents.

Mugabi was tasked to produce the shippers and he led Police to Nannono.

Upon interrogation, Nannono revealed that the package was given to her by a Nigerian national called Okafor Osita Rufus, who stays at Kitende in Kajjansi in Wakiso District.

According to Fred Enanga the Uganda Police Force Spokesman, Nannono led Aviation Police to the home of Okafar Osita and he was arrested.
The shipment which was being shipped by Nannono was destined for Cameroon.

It was found to contain about 306 grams of cream granular substance suspected to be heroin, according to preliminary tests conducted.
The package which was being shipped by another suspect, who is on the run, was destined for India.

Enanga adds that the officers found out that the shipment contained four smaller boxes each containing cream powdered substance suspected to be heroin concealed in the false bottom of these boxes with a gross weight of 525 grams.

The Police PRO adds that when a search was conducted in the house of Okafor, they recovered 10 packages of suspected methamphetamine 939 grams, 485 tablets of suspected MDMA (Ecstasy) 113 grams, 23 small sackets of suspected methamphetamine 20 grams.


Also in the recovery was one pallet of suspected methamphetamine 12 grams, some tablets mixed with powder substance suspected to be Ecstasy 16 grams, other mixtures of powdered substance suspected to be Ecstasy 65 grams.
