Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) have apprehended a Brazil returnee at Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos, who ingested 60 wraps of cocaine, totaling 1.279 kilograms, on a flight from Sao Paulo, Brazil.

A statement on Sunday by the anti-narcotics agency’s spokesperson, Mr. Femi Babafemi, reveals that the returnee, Udechukwu Ekene Theophilus, was arrested during inward clearance of passengers on an Ethiopian Airlines flight from Sao Paulo, Brazil via Addis Ababa, Ethiopia at the D-Arrival Hall of the Lagos airport on Sunday 21st January 2024.

TheFact Daily learns that Udechukwu, in a desperate bid to evade arrest, initially refused to undergo a body scan, raising health concerns.

“When he was however offered other options, he accepted to be placed on excretion observation and shortly after he was ushered into NDLEA observatory, he excreted the first set of cocaine pellets, after which he expelled a total of 60 wraps of the class A drug weighing 1.279 kilogrammes in five excretions”, Babafemi said.

Udechukwu, in his statement,
claimed that he ingested the consignment in Brazil and was to discharge everything at the airport in Addis Ababa but could only excrete 15 pellets which he handed over to another member of his syndicate before his connecting flight to Nigeria was called.

The agency also declared ex-beauty queen Ms. Aderinoye Queen Christmas wanted after she escaped during a raid on her Oral Estate, Lekki residence, on Wednesday 24th January, following credible intelligence that she deals in illicit substances.

Items recovered during the search witnessed by the estate officials include 606 grams of Canadian Loud, a synthetic strain of cannabis, an electronic weighing scale, large quantities of drugs packing plastics, a black RAV 4 SUV marked Lagos KSF 872 GQ, and her picture frame among others.

“The suspect was Miss Commonwealth Nigeria Culture 2015/2016 and the founder of Queen Christmas Foundation”, NDLEA said.

In separate operations, NDLEA seized 822 kilograms of cannabis sativa in Yobe, arrested suspects in Yobe, Kogi, and Kano States, and intercepted a truck carrying cannabis, tramadol, and diazepam pills along Gombe-Bauchi road.
