The handover follows last week’s seizure of the illicit substances by the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) officers stationed at the Roberts International Airport (RIA). The AFL officers seized and handed over to Customs authorities the consignment, allegedly being smuggled through an unauthorized gate. A joint security inspection team initially suspected the content to be Moringa tea based on its packaging, but laboratory testing conducted by the LDEA conclusively revealed that all ten boxes contained narcotic drugs. He expressed appreciation for the partnership and collaboration between Customs and other security agencies and expressed hope for further improvement of border management coordination. The joint security remains committed to collaborative efforts to uphold the rule of law, combat illicit activities, and protect the well-being of the nation and its citizens.
