The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency says it has arrested a man with parcels of methamphetamine (an addictive stimulant) valued at N31m at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.

In a statement on Wednesday, the agency said the suspect was arrested  during outward screening of passengers on a South African Airline flight to Johannesburg.

It said, “The parcels of drug tested positive as methamphetamine and weighed 3.435 kg with a street value of N31m.

“The drug was detected during a routine check on a passenger on South African Airline flight to South Africa.

“Two bags belonging to a 45-year-old man (names withheld), were found to contain parcels of methamphetamine.

“Inside the bags were food items, ingredients and clothes, but underneath were a thin parcel of narcotics carefully concealed.

“He was immediately arrested; investigation is ongoing.”

NDLEA said the suspect, who resides in South Africa, claimed that the bags were given to him by a friend.

Meanwhile, the NDLEA Chairman, Mr Muhammad Abdallah, has warned members of the public to beware of new tricks employed by drug trafficking cartels.
