Nigerite denies importation of cocaine


LAGOS, NOVEMBER 6, 2016 – Nigerite has restated its dedication to the development of only legitimate businesses in the country, insisting that it never engaged in the importation of any contraband items.unnamed-1

It has therefore dissociated itself from substances suspected to be cocaine that were reportedly found in one of the containers in which its imported raw materials were recently shipped in from New Zealand.

In a statement signed by its Marketing Communications and Research Manager, Victor Jolaoso, issued following the disclosure by the Nigeria Custom Service (NCS), the company categorically stated that it was not involved in the packing and containerisation of the goods, and had absolutely nothing to do with the trafficking of cocaine, which is neither a raw material requirement for its operations, nor part of its production processes.

Nigerite, however, expressed its readiness to cooperate fully with the police and the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), in investigating this case, asking the media to let the police and NDLEA conduct their investigations, while expressing confidence that the outcome of the investigation will completely vindicate it.
