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.

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.

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

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

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.

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 .

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 has proven that they are up to the task by intercepting that large sum of heroin drugs and apprending the drug peddlers otherwise they would have endanger the lives of babies through their innocent parents.

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

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.
