Woman who faked pregnancy with 86 wraps of cocaine arrested

17 April 2016, 07:01

Lagos - A 41-year-old woman, who faked pregnancy with 86 pellets of white powdery substances that tested positive to cocaine, has been arrested at the Lagos airport.

According to Premium Times, the mother of three was apprehended by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) during the inward screening of passengers on an Emirates flight from Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The drug weighed at least 1 720kg, with an estimated street value of 20.6 million Naira.

The incident occurred a few months after a 48-year-old woman was also arrested at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International airport in Abuja after she vomited 80 wraps of cocaine weighing 904g.

The incident happened at the central screening section of the departure hall during the screening of passengers on an Egypt Airline flight to Jidda, Saudi Arabia en-route Cairo.

NDLEA described recent drug seizures at the Lagos airport as a welcome development that would force drug cartels to retreat.
