Guinea Bissau National Arrested
With US$100M Worth Of Cocaine

The Liberia Drug Enforcement Agency and the National Security Agency have arrested a 31-year old Guinea Bissau national identified as Malam Conte in connection to the discovery of US$100M worth of cocaine.
The security apparatus picked up the suspect following a well verified intel from the U.S. government.
At about 1:00 PM, the LDEA, according to a release, stormed the SONIT Liberia Inc. compound and seized from there, a huge quantity of raw cocaine concealed among frozen goods owned by SONIT Inc.
SONIT Incorporated is a frozen food company located in Topoe Village along the Japanese Free Way but the company has distanced itself from the act and has since collaborated with the LDEA to ensure the arrest.
Following the arrest, suspect Conte admitted having connection with the consignment and reiterated that he has since arrived in the country about two weeks ago to await the consignment.
The release further stated that during the preliminary investigation, suspect Conte said he was asked by his international partners to follow the consignment and ensure it reaches the final destination, though he did not say as to whether Liberia is the final destination.
According to the LDEA release, it was also established that suspect Malam arrived in the country with two other accomplices who checked in at the Royal Grand Hotel.
“They later moved over to the Boulevard Palace Hotel where the LDEA was able to pick up additional information leading towards their syndicate,” the release added.
Meanwhile, suspects Gustavo Henrique, a Brazilian and Adulai Djibril, a Portuguese who both accompanied suspect Malam were not in their hotel room at the time of the LDEA’s arrival.
The release however averred that Suspect Malam is currently undergoing full scale investigation, while suspects Gustavo Henrique and Adulai Djibril are at large.
The discovery of the US$100M worth of cocaine sets eyes on the prosecution of the perpetrators. A recent report suggests that the country is losing its youthful population to drugs and other narcotics.
