The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has cautioned travelers against accepting luggage from unfamiliar sources without verifying its contents.

Femi Babafemi, the agency’s Director of Media and Advocacy, emphasized this point following an incident involving two students who inadvertently carried bottles of codeine syrup for a friend studying abroad.


According to Babafemi, the students, including a PhD candidate, faced legal trouble when authorities discovered the codeine syrup in the luggage they were transporting.

Thanks to the intervention of the NDLEA, the owner of the luggage was identified and prevented from facing incarceration.

Babafemi stressed the importance of avoiding accepting luggage from unknown individuals to prevent such incidents.

He shared a video illustrating how bags containing opioids were concealed among spare parts being transported from Onitsha to Mubi in Adamawa.

This revelation highlights the ongoing efforts of the NDLEA to combat drug trafficking and raise awareness about the dangers of unverified luggage contents.
