Man hides N27m drug in metal pipes

Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, over the weekend arrested a 26-year-old man for allegedly smuggling 8.5kg of methamphetamine worth about N27 million tactically concealed inside metal pipes at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.
 The suspect, Mr. Afunaya Thaddeus Izunna, who sells phone accessories in Ikeja, Lagos, was apprehended with the narcotic drug during the screening of passengers on Ethiopian airline flight to New Delhi, India.
 Speaking on the arrest, the NDLEA Airport Commander, Mr. Hamza Umar, said the drug was discovered when anti-narcotic officials insisted in searching the metal pipes inside Izunna’s luggage.
 According to Umar, the drug with a total weight of 8.5kg is one of the highest seizures recently recorded at the airport.
 On the development, NDLEA Chairman, Mr. Ahmadu Giade, said: “This is a spectacular seizure because the drug was carefully concealed in a way that makes detection difficult. The significance is that a warning signal has been sent to the enemy camp that one of their best tricks is not good enough. This has been my position and order to the officers that drugs should be intercepted regardless of the mode of concealment.”
 The NDLEA boss however stressed that the suspect would soon be charged to court. Narrating his ordeals, the suspect, Mr. Izunna who hails from Anambra State noted that he was asked to deliver the drug to somebody in India for a fee.
