Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) stormed a hotel on Wednesday, catching suspects preparing to ingest 200 wraps of cocaine. The operation, based on intelligence, targeted individuals attempting to smuggle drugs to Saudi Arabia for the ongoing Hajj pilgrimage.

The agency’s Director of Media and Advocacy, Femi Babafemi, shared the information via his X account on Thursday, along with a video showing the intercepted contraband.

In his post, Babafemi wrote, “Caught in the Act: They were preparing to swallow 200 wraps of cocaine ahead of their flight to the ongoing Hajj in Saudi Arabia Wednesday night, and #ndlea_nigeria officers stormed their hotel rooms in an intel-led operation.”
