NDLEA spokesman, Femi Babafemi, in a statement on Sunday, said the suspects, Asif Muhammed, 45, and Hussain Naveed, 57, were arrested with 8 kilograms of cocaine.
Babafemi said the drugs were concealed in a public address system in which the suspects were attempting to board a Qatar Airways flight to Lahole, Pakistan via Doha.
He said that the two suspects, Asif Muhammed, 45 and Hussain Naveed, 57, who hold Nigerian residence permits suspected to be fake, were frequent travelers to Nigeria under the guise of doing textile business.
According to him, they were arrested on Saturday at the Lagos Airport, barely a week after they came to Nigeria.
KanyiDaily had reported how a 47-year-old suspected drug trafficker, Chigbogu Ernest Obiora, excreted 97 wraps of cocaine at Lagos Airport.
