Cocaine weighing 5.9kg has been abandoned by a suspected drug trafficking syndicate.

The drug was detected by men of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA), Ikeja, Lagos.

The drug which was hidden inside industrial equipment originated from Panama, Central America.

The discovery was made as a suspected drug trafficker excreted 54 wraps of cocaine he ingested in Brazil.

NDLEA Commander at the Lagos Airport, Mr Hamza Umar, said the cocaine consignment was left unclaimed.

“The luggage was imported from Panama. When nobody came forward to claim ownership, we invited other security agencies and carried out search. It was in the process of search that the cocaine was discovered inside industrial equipment.

“A 36 year old man, Onyema Watson Goodman Nnamdi was also apprehended in connection with the ingestion of 54 wraps of cocaine weighing 875 grammes. Both seizures weighed 6.775kg,” Hamza stated.
