Police Commissioner Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho said 40-year-old Frederick Epeli was arrested last week.

Mr Epeli is charged with one count of unlawful importation and exportation, and one count of unlawful possession, manufacture, cultivation and supply of illicit drugs.

Mr Qiliho said police are looking for a second suspect who is alleged to have supplied the drugs and facilitated the exchange.

He praised the airline's co-operation with their investigations.
