Contrary to a report making rounds in some On-line publications, prints and some other sections of the press of Sunday 25th February, 2024 alleging that the Nigeria Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) arrested one Falowo Samuel Kayode – a Dockworker alongside other culprits in connection with two seized containers landed with cocaine and Colorado at the Tincan Island Port, the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) has disclosed that the said Falowo Samuel Kayode is not a Dockworker and not associated with the Union.
According to a press release issued by Comrade John Kennedy Ikemefuna, Head of Media, MWUN, 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.
The press statement reads “The Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) under the leadership of Comrade (Prince) Dr. Adewale Adeyanju, fnli HFCPSP read with dismay the above captioned On-line 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 laded 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 anyway 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 this 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 ports formations nationwide sensitizing its members on the need not to involve themselves in the dealings of narcotics in any form. The Union had also warmed 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 member of the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria.
