A female passenger, recognized as Jatau Lami, has been arrested at the Lagos Airport by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) for endeavoring to export 1,700 tablets of Tramadol 225mg.
The Director, Media and Advocacy, NDLEA, Mr Femi Babafemi confirmed her arrest in a statement released on Sunday.
Babafemi uncovered that the transfer was covered in her baggage to Istanbul, Turkey, by means of a Turkish Airline flight.
He referenced that preliminary investigation uncovered that the suspect, a mother of three, is an indigene of Zango Kataf Local Government Area (LGA), Kaduna State, but lives in Istanbul, Turkey, with her family.
“She blamed her action on pressure to raise N5 million ransom to free her mother from the captivity of bandits who kidnapped her since June,” he added.
