In a startling development, two Nigerian students studying abroad found themselves in the custody of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) after bottles of codeine syrup were discovered in the luggage they were transporting for a friend.

The incident unfolded when the students arrived at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos from their overseas studies. NDLEA officials, during routine checks, detected suspicious items in their luggage, prompting a thorough examination.

Upon inspection, several bottles of codeine syrup were uncovered concealed within the luggage. Codeine, a potent opioid, is a controlled substance due to its high potential for abuse and addiction.

According to NDLEA sources, the students claimed innocence, stating that they were merely transporting the luggage as a favor for their friend. However, they were immediately detained pending further investigation into the matter.

The identity of the friend who allegedly packed the codeine-laden luggage remains undisclosed, with NDLEA officials intensifying efforts to unravel the full extent of the situation.

This incident serves as a stark reminder of the dangers associated with the illegal transportation of controlled substances and the grave consequences that individuals face when caught in possession of such substances.

The NDLEA has reiterated its commitment to combating drug trafficking and abuse, emphasizing the importance of collaboration with law enforcement agencies and the public in curbing the illicit drug trade.

As investigations into the matter continue, the fate of the detained students remains uncertain, underscoring the need for vigilance and adherence to the laws governing the transportation of controlled substances.
