Ms Mahfud is cooling her heels at a police station as cops hunt for her accomplices.
Detectives are yet to establish whether the drug was on transit or meant for local consumption.
“Meanwhile, experts at the Chemistry and Toxicology units based at the DCI National Forensic Laboratory, shall be conducting more tests on the highly addictive drug, the biggest recovery yet in as many months,” said Kinoti.
