The Norwegian police have arrested two Swedish Nationals transporting the phamarceutical drug tramadol. The two were in a flight from Kenya.
The had two huge suitcases each. The young men told the police that they were just clothes, but after a thorough search, authorities found 184,000 tablets with the drug tramadol.
Tramadol is a drug that works on the central nervous system. The drug has a morphine-like effect and should not be used for a long time.
The peddlers claimed that they were not together but said that they were both at a wedding.
It is unclear how such a large consignment of drugs passed through a Kenyan airport unnoticed.
It remains a mystery how Kenya Airport Authority officers who conduct searches did not detect the contents of the suitcases.
