    NDLEA intercepts 200kg of hard drugs at Lagos, Abuja, Kano airports

    Attempts by some defiant traffickers to export hard drugs through the Murtala Mohammed International Airport Lagos; Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, and Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, Kano have been foiled by operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, with 200kg of the illicit substances seized from them.

    At the Lagos airport, 41-year-old Adewuyi Olayinka was arrested while trying to export 650 grammes of cocaine wrapped in two parcels to the United Kingdom through the SAHCO export shed of the MMIA cargo, Ikeja.

    According to the Commander, MMIA Command of the NDLEA, Ahmadu Garba, the drug was concealed in dry local pepper and herbal concoction popularly called ‘agbo’

    In the same vein, 107kg of hard drug suspected to be Khat has been seized at the cargo shed of the Kano airport while being exported to Canada. According to the Ag. Commander, MAKIA Command of the NDLEA, Mohammed Ajiya, “the drug, which weighed 107kgs was concealed in golden colour nylon bags covered with textile materials and labelled tea with a view to deceive and mislead our officers.

    “The so called tea aroused the suspicion of officers at the cargo shed who insisted that it must be subjected to laboratory analysis and test before it will be allowed to go, because the so-called tea came from Lagos by road to Kano and our operatives wondered why the owner did not ship it via Murtala Mohammed Airport, Lagos.”
