At Muritala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) intercepted illicit drugs concealed inside tubers of yam.
FS News reports that the Agency’s Director of Media, Femi Babafemi, made this known in a brief statement released via social media on Thursday, November 17, 2022.
He shared a video which showed NDLEA operatives cutting open a tuber of yam and exposing the concealed hard drugs.
The spokeperson said the discovery is a step ahead of the peddlers, from the agency.
He wrote; “The ingenuity and desperation to conceal drugs for export by cartels beat human imagination. However, it’s obvious @ndlea_nigeria officers are now steps ahead of them courtesy of the inspiring leadership being provided by MB Marwa and support of local and international partners”.
Babafemi said further details about the discovery will be given in the agency’s official statement on Sunday.
