Officers of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) have apprehended a 26 year-old man for attempting to smuggle narcotics concealed in metal pipes.
 
The suspect, Afunaya Izunna, who sells phone accessories in Lagos, was found to be in possession of 8.5kg of methamphetamine during the screening of passengers on Ethiopian airline flight to New Delhi, India at the weekend.
 
The drug, worth N27 million, was discovered when anti-narcotic officers insisted on examining the metal pipes inside  Izunna’s luggage.
 
The Agency’s Airport Commander, Hamza Umar, categorised the drug as one of the highest seizures recorded at the Lagos airport in recent times.
 
“It was a clever mode of concealment, but I am glad we were able to detect it and the suspect apprehended. The case is under investigation,” he said.
 
The suspect, who is married with two children, claimed to be taking the metal pipes abroad at the behest of a friend for a fee.
 
“Unfortunately, when I got to the airport during screening, NDLEA officers discovered the drug and I was arrested. This is my first time of smuggling drugs. I hope my wife will understand and forgive men,” he added.
 
The Chairman of the Agency, Ahmadu Giade, expressed delight over the arrest and seizure, describing it as a good signal.
 
“This is a spectacular seizure because the drug was carefully concealed in a way that makes detection difficult,” he said.
 
“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.”
