29year-old Plumber arrested by NDLEA excretes 57 wraps of Cocaine

In LAGOS— Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, Thursday, arrested a 29-year-old plumber, Mr. Ogu Okechukwu, for unlawful importation of 945 grammes of cocaine at
Murtala Muhammed International Airport, MMIA, Lagos.

The suspect was apprehended during the inward screening of passengers on an Etihad flight from Abu Dhabi on arrival at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport with 57 wraps of cocaine he allegedly rought in from Brazil.

Speaking on the arrest, NDLEA Airport Commander, Hamza Umar, said the suspect ingested a total of 57 wraps of cocaine hidden in male condoms.

He said “The suspect, Ogu Okechukwu, excreted 57 wraps of powdery cocaine packed inside male condoms and sealed with cello-tape. It is a dangerous practice because many drug traffickers have died as a result of leakage in such wraps of narcotics.”

Okechukwu told investigators: “I am a plumber. I am married with two children and my wife just delivered our second baby. My problem was how to pay my rent of 150,000 naira.
“While looking for money, I was introduced to drug trafficking. They promised me 300,000 naira if only I will bring the drug from Brazil. My travel expenses were sponsored.
“While in Brazil, I was given 100 wraps of drugs to swallow but I could only take 57 because it was my first time and it was not easy to ingest. I feel very bad.”
