Operatives of the National Dr*g Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) have arrested a businesswoman at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, for ingesting 80 pellets of coc*ine.
The 46-year-old suspect, identified as Mrs. Adisa Afusat Olayinka, was heading to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, when she was arrested on Wednesday, November 24.
NDLEA spokesman, Femi Babafemi, in a statement on Monday, November 29, said she was arrested at the boarding screening area of the airport during an outward clearance of Qatar Airways flight 1418. She was subsequently taken into custody where she excreted 80 pellets of the illicit dr*g between Wednesday and Saturday, 27th Nov.
According to him, “She claimed during interviews that she saved N2.5million over a period of one year to buy the dr*gs in bits from six different people at Akala, Mushin area of Lagos.
The suspect further said she was trading in clothes but had to borrow N1million from three persons to make up the money used to buy the dr*gs, adding that she spent another N1million to renew her passport, visa, and buy return flight tickets.
She said she was encouraged to traffic the dr*gs by a woman she met during her last Umrah trip to Saudi Arabia in 2019. She added that she needed to raise N7million for In Vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment due to pressure from people because she’s been married for 28 years without a child due to fertility challenges.”
