NDLEA intercepts drug consignments in winter jackets, body lotion in Lagos

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has intercepted consignments of Tramadol, Rohypnol, Ecstasy (Designer drug) and Cannabis concealed in winter jackets and bottles of body cream in Lagos.

This is contained in a statement by the NDLEA Director, Media and Advocacy, Mr Femi Babafemi, on Sunday in Abuja.

Babafemi said the drugs were seized at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport on Friday in Lagos.

He said that the psychoactive substances were recovered at the new terminal of the airport.

This, he said, followed the arrest of a passenger, Joshua Sunday, who was travelling on a Qatar Airlines flight via Doha to Oman, Middle East.

“A thorough search of the suspect’s two black bags led to the discovery of 4.80 kg of cannabis,” he said
