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




Following a tip-off about a group engaged in this illicit activity, operatives from the CP Tactical Team, Eko, quickly mobilized to the scene. They apprehended Ogujiofor Emeka, 41, and Desmond Chima, 31.


During the raid, authorities recovered a substantial quantity of suspected counterfeit alcoholic beverages and production materials. The 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. Additionally, 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.
