The arrest and seizure took place at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport (NAIA) Abuja.
The estimated street value of the drug imported from Brazil is N119m.
The NDLEA commander at the Abuja Airport, Mr. Hamisu Lawan, gave the names of the suspects as Daniel Marvin and Akubuo Favour Victor.
According to him, Daniel Marvin with Nigerian passport number A05545613 was arrested during the screening of passengers on an Emirates Airline flight from Dubai. He was found in possession of 7.580kg of cocaine hidden inside capacitors.
The second suspect, Akubuo Favour Victor, was found in possession of 5.750kg of cocaine hidden inside perfumes. Both suspects were coming from Brazil.
Mitchel Ofoyeju, NDLEA Head of Public Affairs, said the 29-year-old Daniel from Abia State claimed to be a trader and was introduced into drug trafficking by his friend.
The second suspect, Akubuo Favour Victor, a 26-year-old trader from Anambra State, said he smuggled drugs for money.
“I needed some money to invest in my ailing business. That was how my friend convinced me to smuggle drugs for half a million naira. The drug was hidden inside new perfume containers and I never knew it would be uncovered,” Akubuo, who is married with two children, said.
