The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency(NDLEA), on Tuesday said it arrested two suspects with cocaine at the Murtalla Mohammed International Airport

A statement by the agency's spokesperson, Mr Mitchell Ofoyeju, stated that one of the suspects was arrested on his way to Hong Kong after ingesting cocaine.

He said: “Another suspect, who lives in Athens, Greece, was also apprehended in connection with unlawful possession of wraps of substances that tested positive to cocaine.

The arrests were made at the MMIA, Lagos, during screening of passengers on an Ethiopian Airline flight to Hong Kong and Egypt Airline flight to Athens.

Preliminary investigation suggests that the suspects had targeted the Christmas holiday to smuggle cocaine out of the country but drug law enforcement officials at the Lagos airport were able to uncover their plan.

The total weight of cocaine seized from the suspects is 1.150kgs. One of them excreted 45 wraps of cocaine he ingested, weighing 935 grammes while the other excreted five wraps of cocaine weighing 215 grammes.

Both suspects tested positive for narcotic ingestion and while under observation; they expelled wraps of cocaine which they had wanted to smuggle out of the country. The suspects are currently under investigation.

The high expectations of both suspects making quick money this festive season from drug trafficking had been dashed by vigilant anti-narcotic officers.”

The Chairman of the agency, Muhammad Abdallah said that this is a warning to drug traffickers that the agency is determined to detect all hidden drugs and prosecute offenders.
