Two freight agents arrested in drug bust

4.5 billion in heroin found in packages of baby food weighing 255 kilograms.

TVC News Nigeria gives us a report on a drug bust at the airport.

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has intercepted 22 blocks of heroin weighing 255 kilograms at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos. The drugs were concealed in packs of Cerelac baby food. This is a significant bust for the NDLEA, as heroin is a highly addictive and dangerous drug. The drug is often smuggled into the country hidden in other items, such as food. The fact that the drug was concealed in baby food is particularly concerning, as it shows that the smugglers are willing to put children at risk in order to get the drug into the country. The NDLEA is to be commended for their work in intercepting this shipment of heroin.

A job well done, kudos the NDLEA.

This shows that they need to do more work, as there might be more cases of it.

Yes, we know that sometimes these NDLEA officials and other enforcement agencies don’t do their work correctly, but when they do excellent jobs like this, they must be commended. Good job from them, and they should keep it up.

To the credit of the NDLEA, they were able to stop the delivery of heroin thanks to their efforts successfully. More of this, please

Desperation for survival is becoming extreme and I don’t really blame some people because it’s because of the state they find themselves in this country.

An excellent job by the NDLEA. It has shown that they are up to the task by intercepting that large sum of heroin drugs. Apprehending the drug peddlers is key. Support from Government is key as well

With the NDLEA action bursting heroin and hard drugs everywhere in an act to control and curb drug trafficking in Nigeria its just a matter of time before drug lords get depleted.

NDLEA should not relent on its effort of arresting those involved in drug trafficking. Because those that do this meant to be behind bars, they are nothing more than nuisance to our community

Thanks to the NDLEA who intercepted this huge kilograms of heroin drug. These drugs barons really want to put babies lives in danger. Imaging a parent who bought one of this concealed heroin cerelac pack mistakingly and fed it to the baby. That will kill the baby.God help us all.

The NDLEA did an excellent job on this aspect; may Allah bless their efforts and grant them the strength to do more. Apart from the prayers, the government should also back them well.

How can people waste this large amount of money on drugs that are not beneficial to humans health. I hope they keep arresting them so others will learn from this and reduce the rate of drug trafficking .

I cannot express how happy I am with how the officers and soldiers of the MMIA command have performed their duties in order to ensure that this operation has been carried out effectively.

This is just another proof of how desperate people can be to make money because how can you put drugs into baby foods, for goodness sake.

Brilliant job from our NDLEA officials; now they just need proper financial backing and support, then I’m sure they’ll be able to carry out more efficient operations.

Kudos to the NDLEA. Drug trafficking is now getting wild. Who could have thought drugs were concealed in baby foods.

This is very appaling. Even children goods and foods are at risk of being used to smuggle drugs by these smugglers. I commend the role NDLEA is playing in arresting these criminals and prosecuting them. They are danger to the security of the nation. The drugs they smuggle damage the body system and they should be incarcerated for such crime.

Wow the NDLEA are doing a very good job, we need more of this in other to tight up our security. They don’t even care about the health of those who will consume the food bt in other for they to fill there own pocket they put others in danger. Example must be made, punish them so will serve as example to other

The NDLEA is really doing a nice job in curtaining the excessive drug business and use.The drug cartel are just into the business because of their selfish interest without considering the adverse effect on the society.But lots still need to be done through sensitisation and awareness on how dangerous it is if someone involve in drug business and also making use of those drug

Any kind of drug burst is a victory for the citizens. Am still shocked with the method the smugglers used in the event. The NDLEA has done it again prevention is better than the cure.
