DRUG TRAFFICKER ARRESTED IN LAGOS AIRPORT- 22nd Nov 2021, 11:15am
A Brazil based dr*g dealer, Okafor Okwudili Moses, has been arrested by operatives of the National Dr*g Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), over a 2.55 kilograms of coc*ine recovered from a toilet at the E-Arrival hall of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.
The dr*g was discovered in the toilet of the airport on Friday, November 12, after it was dumped there by a trafficker who was obviously scared of being caught by narcotic officers positioned at the airport.
The following day, Saturday, November 13, the actual owner of the consignment, Okafor, arrived the airport from Brazil via an Ethiopian Airline flight and was promptly arrested.
NDLEA’s spokesperson, Femi Babafemi, in a statement on Sunday, November 21, said while being interviewed in custody, the suspect confirmed he is the owner of the seized illicit dr*g.
