A Nigerian organized crime network in large-scale cocaine trafficking was dismantled by authorities in Luxembourg, Europol announced today. Nineteen individuals have been detained. The group is accused of selling and distributing cocaine from Belgium to Luxembourg.
The coordinated law enforcement operation was led by Luxembourg's Grand Ducal Police and supported by Luxembourg Customs and Europol.
On Tuesday, more than 250 police and customs officers carried out house raids in Luxembourg and one in Belgium. The premises searched were rented by Nigerian members of the network who were staying illegally in the country. Europol alleges these houses served as headquarters for the drug traffickers to store and distribute the cocaine, and plan their criminal activities. Various evidence was seized including cocaine, documents, mobile devices, and more than €100,000 in cash.
