The NDLEA Director of Media and Advocacy, Femi Babafemi, who disclosed this in a statement on Monday, said the suspect was arrested with three parcels of cocaine concealed in a false bottom created in his suitcase.

Hassan was intercepted at the E-Arrival Hall of the MMIA upon his arrival onboard an Ethiopian airline flight around 1.30pm on Friday.

According to the statement, preliminary investigations reveal that Hassan has been plying the illicit trade through the middle east routes for some time.

“The suspect came into Nigeria through Addis-Ababa but he actually travelled to Addis-Ababa from Abuja,” the Commander of MMIA NDLEA Command, Ahmadu Garba, was quoted as saying in a statement.

He added, “Upon a thorough search, we discovered another ticket on him while our findings also show that he has been plying his criminal trade through some Middle East countries.”
