Cocaine in candies

Nigeria's National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, intercepted a Brazil returnee, Agbasi Prosper Chux with cocaine concealed in candies at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos on Christmas Day. An initial search of Chux's two checked in bags almost gave him a free pass as there was nothing incriminating found.

NDLEA cops then took an interest in the duty-free shopping nylon bags containing packs of 'candies’ he was holding in his hands. The packs of candies concealed 105 parcels of cocaine weighing 2.8 kilograms. A plastic bottle of body lotion also tested positive for cocaine with a total weight of 472 grams.
