According to Mitchel Ofoyeju, the agency’s Head of Public Affairs, the suspects were arrested for ingesting cocaine.
He stated that the suspects were placed under observation until the many wraps of cocaine were expelled from them.
The statement stated that they were arrested on Brazil-Nigeria route.
Mr Hamza Umar, NDLEA Commander in Lagos Airport, said that “the suspects ingested many wraps of cocaine to be smuggle to another country.
“The NDLEA has apprehended four suspected drug traffickers for ingesting hard drugs.
“We will do our best to curtail trafficking and make Nigeria a no go country for drug business,’’ Umar said.
The NDLEA boss directed its officers to remain vigilant at all times so that Brazil-Nigeria route would be a high-risk path for barons.
Umar said that the four arrested suspects would be charged to court.
