Arrested Cocaine Importers Are Not Our Members, Say MWUN

By Ebenezer William

The Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) under the leadership of Comrade (Prince) Dr Adewale Adeyanju, only HFCPSP read with dismay the above-captioned publications, the prints and some other sections of the press of Sunday 25th February 2024 reporting that the Nigeria Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) arrested one Falowo Samuel Kayode – a Dockworker alongside other culprits in connection with two seized containers with Nos. MSCU 4581770 and TRHU 7968071 were loaded with 56.39kg of Cocaine and 795kg of Colorado respectively.

“The Maritime Workers Union wish to draw the attention of the NDLEA that the said arrested Falowo Samuel Kayode is a staff of Five Star Logistics Terminal and not a member of the Dockworkers Branch of the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria; hence, the Union wants to clear the air that Falowo Samuel Kayode is not in any way a Dockworker under the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria as against the various reportage by some quarters of the press”.

“The Union also wants to correct these erroneous publications and broadcasts by the media that the said arrested Falowo Samuel Kayode should not be associated with the name of this great Union, which had since been on the vigorous campaign against the peddling of Hard Drugs within the Ports and its environs, as indulging in such acts would be detrimental to the image of the country amongst the comity of maritime nations”.

“The Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) had taken its campaign across all the formations nationwide sensitizing its members on the need not to involve themselves in the dealings of narcotics in any form”.

“The Union had also warned that members must not engage themselves with importers, barons, and clearing agents over the handling and discharge of narcotics at the ports; and that any member(s) found wanting in the cases of narcotics ceases to be a member of the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria”.
