‘Don’t carry bags that are not yours’ – NDLEA warns travelers


Travellers have been warned by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency against taking any luggage that they don’t know its content from anyone while travelling.

Femi Babafemi, the agency’s Director of Media and Advocacy, shared the information via his X account on Sunday, explained that two students, including a PhD student, ran into trouble when bottles of codeine syrup were discovered in luggage they were carrying for a female friend studying abroad.

According to the statement, “A PhD student and another student studying abroad got into custody because bottles of codeine syrup were found in the luggage they picked for their female friend abroad.”

The statement further explained that they would have been jailed if #ndlea_nigeria had not worked hard to ensure the owner was put on the next flight home.

He said that is the reason they warn people not to take any luggage they don’t know its content from anyone.

It added that the video shows how bags of opioids were concealed among spare parts coming from Onitsha heading to Mubi in Adamawa
