This is just as the anti-narcotics agency arrested a Nigerien for concealing drugs in pesticide tanks and 19 others in multiple raids across the country.

The agency’s Director of Media and Advocacy, Femi Babafemi, in a statement on Sunday, added that the NDLEA Directorate of Operations and General Investigation intercepted illicit drugs concealed in synthetic hair and ladies’ clothes meant for shipment to the United States.

Speaking on the intercepted codeine shipment, Babafemi stated that the agency received intelligence which prompted it to carefully examine a container marked HASU 4787890 from India which was en route the C to C Bonded Terminal in Enugu.
