PHOTOS: Four Smugglers Excrete 171 Wraps of Cocaine at NDLEA Office

Four suspected drug traffickers has been reported to have excreted 171 wraps of cocaine after being suspected and placed under observation by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in lagos.

The suspects - Ejiofor Eliezer (46), Obah Francis (30), Akpa Sobuzochukwu (27) and 36-year-old Ike Okechukwu, according to NDLEA, were apprehended at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos after attempting to smuggle cocaine into Brazil.

Eliezer, who excreted 100 wraps of the drug - the highest single ingestion since January 2015, told investigators that poverty in responsible and it has pushed him to commit this crime act, adding that he had intended to use the expected proceed to fend for his family of four.

“I live in Brazil, where I work in a supermarket and lived with my family (my wife and four children). Life in Brazil is really hard and asuch i live from hand to mouth. It was poverty that has pushed me to smuggle drugs. I took risk by swallowing 100 wraps of cocaine for N200,000 because of poverty.”

 Francis said he took to drug trafficking to augment the meager salary he earned at a bakery in Brazil.
“I am single and have been working in Brazil for two years. At present, I work in a bakery and my salary is meager. My plan was to give the drug to a friend in Dubai, but he did not come to collect the drug as planned. This was how I had to come to Nigeria with the drug. I blame my friend for my arrest because I would have made S15,000 (about N2.8m) from the deal.”
Sobuzochukwu, who holds a diploma in accounting, also said his poor salary as a cleaner forced him to ingest 26 wraps of cocaine for a fee of S1,500 (about N285,000).

Okechukwu said he did not think that he would be arrested. He said he had thought that the five wraps of cocaine he ingested would not be detected.
“I regret my involvement in drug trafficking. I dropped out of school in Junior Secondary School class two and I work in a toy company in Brazil,” he added.
NDLEA Lagos Airport commander Hamza Umar said Eliezer and Francis were caught during screening of passengers on an Emirates flight; Sobuzochukwu and Okechukwu were nabbed during screening of passengers on a Qatar airline flight. They will soon be charged to court.
