Two drug traffickers, Suleiman Tunde Oba and Salami Hakeem Babatunde, were on Monday sentenced to 10 years in prison each by a Federal High Court for trafficking 25.10kg of ephedrine, a prohibited drug.

The men were given the jail terms by Justice Nicholas Oweibo, with an option of N1m fine each after they pleaded guilty.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Mr Augustine Nwagu, told the court that the defendants conspired with one other suspect, who was at large, to commit the illegal act on August 25, 2023.

He said they were arrested with the drug during outward clearance of passengers of a Rwandair flight to Johannesburg, South Africa, at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos.

He noted that the offences committed by the defendants contravened Sections 14(b) and 11(b) of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency Act Cap N30 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.
