“Although the man was not found with any drugs, his wife and two children, who are twins aged six years, were found with cocaine hidden in their underwear,” an official of Nigeria’s Drug Law Enforcement Agency NDLEA said.
The woman was carrying more than 3Kg of cocaine while her children carried a total of around 700 grams, he said.
Narcotics agents detained the family as it was about to board a London-bound at Lagos’s Murtala Mohammed International airport on March 28.
“We have released the twins to other family members because they are minors and innocent while their parents will soon be taken to court for drug trafficking,” said the official. AFP
