The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), and Department of State Services (DSS) have seized a type of drug identified as one of the most notorious stimulants being taken by ISIS terrorists and other violent insurgents in the Middle East.

The hard drug is called Captagon. Captagon, popularly known as Fenethylline, is also called "The Amphetamine Fuelling Syria's War" or "The Jihadists' Drug" by the media.

Captagon is used by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS or ISIL) and other extremist groups to enhance their soldiers' abilities, keep them awake for long, dull their pain, and create a sense of euphoria.

Area Commander of Apapa Command, Comptroller Malanta Yusuf, disclosed this in a statement signed by the Public Relations Officer of the command, Abubakar Usman, in Lagos on Wednesday.

According to Yusuf, the drug traffickers attempted to smuggle the drug into the country by hiding it inside an imported machine coming through Apapa Port in Lagos.

The crime was busted through a joint operation involving the NCS, NDLEA, and DSS after they dismantled the machine and deployed sniffer dogs for assistance.

“Further dismantling of cylinders in the machine is ongoing. The operation which involved heads of the three services will be sustained in the fight against all forms of smuggling and infractions.

“One suspect in connection with the seizure was arrested while further examination and counting are ongoing before more details will be released,” he said.

He said the long-term use of the drug led to serious side effects; the most common of which are extreme depression, lethargy, insomnia, occasional palpitation of the heart, blood vessel toxicity, and malnutrition.

He stressed that the drug had been identified as one of the most notorious stimulants being taken by ISIS fighters and other insurgents to cause unrest in the Middle East.
