Its Director, Media and Advocacy, Mr Femi Babafemi, stated this on Saturday in Abuja that 140 grammes of methamphetamine packaged in the statue of Mary was seized in one of the courier companies.

The drug was to be delivered in Philippines

Babafemi added that 500 grammes of heroin concealed in auto spare parts heading to Canada were also intercepted at a second courier company.

He stated also that a package of 3.1 kilogrammes of Indian hemp concealed inside spices, and another package of one kilogramme of Indian hemp concealed inside local herbs were seized.

The two packages were to be delivered at UAE.

In a related development, the NDLEA arrested 31 suspects in Ondo State for being in possession of 276 kg of assorted illicit drugs. Those arrested included seven females.
