 Two suspected drug traffickers arrested by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, have blamed their friend for luring them into the criminal act, the agency alleged on Saturday. 

The men were apprehended for attempting to export 4.285 kilogrammes of methamphetamine to India. 

The arrests took place at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport Lagos during routine search on passengers boarding an Ethiopian airline flight to India, NDLEA said without disclosing the date of arrest. “The substance that tested positive for methamphetamine is valued at N68.5 million,” NDLEA said. 

The drug, according to the NDLEA airport Commander, Mr. Hamza Umar, was hidden inside a brown luggage. The suspects are Eboro Joe Okwudili, 41, and Opara Daniel, 30. “Eboro was the person travelling while Opara Daniel was assigned to monitor Eboro to avoid diversion of the drug. During screening, the drug was discovered in his luggage at the baggage checking desk,” NDLEA said.

 Chairman/Chief Executive of the NDLEA, Ahmadu Giade, was quoted as saying that there is no escape route for drug traffickers. “We shall continue to monitor and prevent cases of drug trafficking in the country. Already, two suspects have been arrested in connection with this case and we are working hard to arrest others” the NDLEA boss assured. NDLEA said the suspects will soon be charged to court.

    The only thing that remain for these guys is just to be praying for them may be God will change,because i can see that they can not change again.if not with all the drug pushers arrested in the recent time, i don’t think any one should ever venture into hard drug business. May be because the penalty did not carry death sentences.
    PLEASE LET US USE THIS FORUM TO BE INTERCEDING FOR THEM. MAY GOD ALMIGHTY CHANGE THEM.
