According to the spokesman of NDLEA, Femi Babafemi, it took the painstaking efforts of

NDLEA officers and deployment of sniffer dogs to be able to discover the complex mode

of concealment of the illicit substance.


At the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, NAIA, Abuja, vigilant operatives of the Agency

on Monday 13th February, intercepted a 29-year-old Apeh Kelvin Ogbonna while attempting

to board a Turkish airline flight TK0624 going through Istanbul to Cyprus, with 4.5 kilograms

of methamphetamine concealed in false bottoms of his travelling bag.

The suspect, Mr Babafemi says, was running a boutique business in Enugu before he decided to

travel to Cyprus for a degree in Business Administration. At three courier firms in Lagos, operatives

intercepted two cocaine consignments weighing 400 grams each, going to the United Kingdom and

Saudi Arabia.


“They were hidden in walls of cartons used for packaging. Two other consignments containing

500 grams and 100 grams of methamphetamine were also blocked from being shipped to New

Zealand after they were discovered concealed in food items”.
