The Nigerian drug enforcement company says it has made what seems to be the biggest seizure of cocaine within the country’s historical past.

Some 1.8 tons of cocaine estimated to be value greater than $278m (£243m) have been found in a warehouse within the Ikorodu area, north-east of the business hub, Lagos.

The drugs have been saved in 10 journey luggage and 13 drums, said the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).

Four Nigerian men aged 69, 65, and two 53-year-olds have been arrested in several elements of Lagos.

A international national was additionally detailed, in what the company said was a “well coordinated and intelligence led operation” performed over two days.

NDLEA says the men have been planning to sell the drugs to patrons in Europe, Asia and other elements of the world.

The company’s head, Brig Gen Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd), praised his officers, who labored with their US counterparts within the operation.

“The bust is a historical blow to the drug cartels and a strong warning that they’ll all go down if they fail to realise that the game has changed,” a statement from the company quoted him as saying.
