The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Command, Abuja, has intercepted 21.9 kilograms of cocaine.
NDLEA spokesperson, Jonah Achema, said on Monday in Abuja that the illicit substance concealed in two suitcases is the largest single seizure by the command.
Achema said the two unaccompanied and unclaimed suit cases were discovered after the arrival of Ethiopian Airline, ET 910 in Abuja from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
He added that after many weeks of no claim by the owners, a search was conducted on the unclaimed suitcases in the presence of the airline officials and security personnel.
Achema said the first unclaimed suit case contained 10.750KG while the second unclaimed suit case contained 11.150KG.
He said the command was liaising with Ethiopian Airline to get more information in order to unravel the identity of the couriers.
