A 35-year-old suspected drug trafficker, identified as Jatau Lydia Lami, has been arrested by operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) at Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.

The mother-of-three was nabbed on Sunday, July 31, 2022 for attempting to export 1,700 tablets of Tramadol 225mg concealed in her luggage to Istanbul, Turkey via a Turkish Airline flight.

In a statement released to Newsmen on Sunday, August 7, NDLEA’s spokesperson, Femi Babafemi, said: “Preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect hails from Zango Kataf LGA, Kaduna State and lives in Istanbul, Turkey with her family.
