A 45-year-old man, Abiodun Banjo, has landed in serious trouble after he was arrested by officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos State with drugs worth N31 million.
Banjo, a graduate of a technical college in Ogun State, was on his way to Pretoria, South Africa, when he was arrested with the drug concealed in two bags containing parcels of methamphetamine.
Speaking on Banjo's arrest, NDLEA spokesperson, Mitchell Ofoyeju, his arrest took place during the outward screening of passengers on a South African airline flight to South Africa.
He said, “Two bags belonging to the suspect were found to contain parcels of methamphetamine. Inside the bags were also food ingredients and clothes, but underneath these was a thin parcel of narcotics carefully concealed. He was immediately arrested and investigation is ongoing.”
Speaking on how he came about the drugs, Banjo said: “I work in Pretoria. My friend in South Africa called me that his brother would give me two bags containing foodstuffs to bring while coming. He also promised to give me $2,000. I opened the bags and checked thoroughly, but, could not find anything incriminating. That was why I accepted to take the bags.

“I was surprised when the drug was detected under the bags. I feel sad that my friend has implicated me.”
The NDLEA Chairman, Muhammad Abdallah, said members of the public must be aware of the tricks employed by drug cartels.
