Three suspects arrested by NDLEA for drug trafficking


Three suspects were on Wednesday arrested by the Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency for drug trafficking.

Two suspects: John Ifechukwu and Victor Anadu were intercepted at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja while Omotayo Anifowoshe was arrested at Lagos Airport.

They reportedly swallowed 65 and 54 wraps of substances to conceal the drug.

Spokesperson for the NDLEA, Jonah Achemah, confirming their arrest said a 37-year-old woman, Omotayo Anifowoshe, was arrested at the local wing of the Lagos airport with 3.0 kilogrammes of ephedrine and 1.9kg of cocaine.

Achemah said, “Ifechukwu flew in from Lagos and was intercepted at the airport in Abuja. He excreted 65 wraps of substances weighing 864 grammes out of which only one wrap tested positive for methamphetamine. He was on his way to Indonesia.

“Anadu was intercepted on his way to Indonesia. He excreted 54 wraps weighing 1,073.4 kilogrammes of suspected substances out of which 700 grammes tested positive for methamphetamine. The remaining 373.4 grammes did not test positive for any known drug.

“Anifowoshe, 37, an indigene of Epe, Lagos State, was arrested moments after landing in Lagos and was to connect her flight to South Africa through a short cut linking the local airport to the international airport, after successfully boycotting security screening point.

“She was intercepted with two big bags containing 3kgs of Ephedrine and 1.9kgs of Cocaine base. The drugs were concealed in the false bottom of the bags. She confessed that the luggage was handed to her by her fiancĂ© at whose instance was the trip.”
