NDLEA finds cannabis in head-mistress’ luggage

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has foiled a 30-year-old man’s attempt to smuggle cannabis to Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) in an headmistress’ luggage.

The drug, which weighed 130 grammes, was packed inside an alcoholic beverage , Alomo Bitters. The substance was detected at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA) in Ikeja, Lagos.

The suspect, Nnadi Chibueze, allegedly concealed the drug and gave it to the woman to deliver in Dubai.

NDLEA Airport Commander Mr. Hamza Umar said: “As soon as the drug was detected, we conducted a follow-up raid that led to the arrest of the main suspect, Nnadi Chibueze. He has owned up to the crime and the case is being investigated for subsequent prosecution.”

According to Chibueze, the drug consignment was inadvertently given to the head mistress. “I personally concealed the cannabis inside one of the bottles of Alomo Bitters. The original plan was to send the drug to my brother in Dubai through a friend, but the consignment was given to the head mistress in error. When I was told that the goods were given to her, I was greatly disturbed. It was a great mistake that she was given the consignment that contained the drug,” he said.

The suspect, who hails from Imo State, claimed to be a 2008 graduate of Physics from the University of Cape Coast, Ghana.
