Officials of the National Drug Law Enforce­ment Agency (NDLEA) have discovered 6.158 kilogrammes of hero­in abandoned at the Murta­la Muhammed Internation­al Airport, Lagos.
The consignment, which originated from Pakistan, was left unclaimed on the conveyor belt at the arriv­al hall during the inward screening of passengers on Etihad Airways flight.
Two suspected drug traffickers were also ap­prehended at the airport while attempting to smug­gle 2.035kg of cocaine con­cealed in cassava flour to Nairobi, Kenya and 2.485kg of cannabis to Qatar, the NDLEA said in a statement on Friday.
The NDLEA command­er at the airport, Ahmadu Garba, said the abandoned heroin was hidden inside a bag of clothes.
“Officers detected 6.158kg of heroin hidden amidst clothes in the aban­doned luggage,” said Mr. Garba.
