Suspects arrested for alleged production of adulterated alcohol in Lagos

Lagos authorities on Friday, June 7, arrested two individuals involved in the illegal production of adulterated alcoholic drinks at Oko-Arin Market on Lagos Island.

Acting on a tip-off about a group engaged in the illicit activity, operatives from the CP Tactical Team, Eko, swiftly mobilised to the scene and apprehended Ogujiofor Emeka, 41, and Desmond Chima, 31.

However, other suspects were said to have escaped.

The raid resulted in the recovery of a substantial quantity of suspected counterfeit alcoholic beverages and production materials.

Seized items included five cartons of Jack Daniels, two cartons of Black Barrel, and one carton each of William Lawson, Jameson, Black Label, and Remy Martin drinks.

Also, six cartons of empty Glenfiddich bottles, one carton of empty Divin Bardar bottles, and one carton of empty vodka bottles were confiscated, along with assorted labels and corks used in the production process.

Preliminary investigations suggest that the suspects sold the adulterated drinks to customers in Cotonou, Benin Republic.

Authorities said the investigation continues to apprehend the remaining suspects and uncover the full extent of the illegal operation.
