LAGOS JANUARY 21ST (NEWSRANGERS)-The man who owns that drug that was slipped into the luggage of a passenger by airport staff has been arrested.

Confirming the development, the Director of Media and Advocacy of the NDLEA, Femi Babafemi, said Punnit has in his statement confirmed ownership of the drug.
