The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) cut short the journey of a Nigerian woman, Nora Nnadi, who was allegedly caught with 100 wraps of heroin and two parcels of the same substance at the departure hall of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Ikeja, Lagos.
According to Punch, the woman was on her way to Italy.
Speaking with the press, the spokesperson for the NDLEA, Femi Babafemi, said that Nnadi was arrested on Tuesday, August 3, 2021, during an outward clearance of passengers on Qatar Airways flight to Florentine, Italy.
The report continued: “the drugs found on her were concealed in five containers of hair relaxer cream.”
This came after the operatives at the MMIA Command of the agency arrested a United Kingdom-bound consignment of illicit drugs at the NAHCO export shed of the airport.
