Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency have arrested a 34-year-old South American male from Suriname, Dadda Albert, for smuggling into Nigeria, 117 parcels of cocaine concealed in extra-large latex condoms factory-packed inside bottles of 100ml body spray.

Albert was arrested at the Port Harcourt International Airport, Rivers State.

The Director, Media and Advocacy, NDLEA, Femi Babafemi, made the disclosure through a statement obtained by newsmen on Sunday.

Babafemi said, “The suspect claimed he departed his country, Suriname, located in the North Eastern coast of South America on April 2, for Sao Paulo, Brazil, and he departed from Sao Paulo to Nigeria on Friday, April 7, onboard Qatar Airways flight in search of his long-lost Nigerian father, whom he called ‘Omini’.”

In the same vein, NDLEA operatives and other stakeholders at the Tincan seaport in Lagos, intercepted 110 parcels of Colorado.

Babafemi said the strain of cannabis, weighing 55kg, was hidden in a container bearing five units of used vehicles, marked MSCU 4972769, from Toronto via Montreal, Canada.

“The seizure was part of a total of 1,559.3 kilograms (1.5 tons) of the psychoactive substance seized during interdiction operations in five states in the past week,” he said.
