Heroine drugs
Heroin was intercepted at JKIA en route across Africa

Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) officials have intercepted 980 grams of h****n worth Ksh2.9 million at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).

The d***s being smuggled into the country from Mbarara, Uganda were concealed in African crafts and were destined for Delta State in Nigeria.

“The n*******s were intercepted by the K9 unit at a DHL yard at the airport after enforcement officers who were on a routine check found a s****************e,” said KRA in a statement.

According to the taxman, the substance was subjected to scanning and verification at the KRA Customs laboratory, and was positively identified to be h****n.

This interception comes days after KRA intercepted several packages of n*******s concealed as vitamin tablets at JKIA in what is fast becoming a common method in which barons transport d***s.

The n*******s had also been sent as a parcel using an international courier service provider.

“This points to a possible change of tact by d**g traffickers who now seem to smuggle prohibited substances in concealments via courier service providers as opposed to making deliveries in person,” added the revenue authority in the statement.
