Passenger From B.razil Arrested With Cocaine In Jacket At Lagos Airport (Photo)


A 31-year old man named Agwu  Samuel, was arrested at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) Lagos after officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) discovered wraps of narcotics in the collar of his jacket.
Samuel was arrested shortly after he disembarked from an aircraft on his way from Sao Paulo, B.razil.
He had confidently worn the jacket containing the drugs but through experience and insight, the drugs were discovered by officers.
This is the first discovery of cocaine inside the collar of a jacket by the NDLEA.
In his reaction, the Chairman/Chief Executive of the Agency, Muhammad Mustapha Abdallah,
described the suspect’s action as desperately crafty and cunning.
The NDLEA commander at the Lagos airport, Ahmadu Garba, said that the suspect was arrested during routine check on passengers.
“Ten wraps of cocaine weighing 110 grammes were found inside the collar of his jacket during screening of passengers on a South Africa Airline flight from B.razil through Johannesburg. The drug which was carefully hidden inside his jacket tested positive for cocaine and investigation is ongoing.” 
Agwu Samuel who sells shoes in Togo, said in his statement that he went to B.razil in search of greener pastures but resorted to drug trafficking due to frustration. According to the suspect:
“I use to sell shoes in Togo until I lost goods worth N3 million. This negatively affected my business and made me to travel to B.razil in a desperate search for greener pastures. After a fruitless search for job in B.razil for four months, I decided to smuggle drugs to get some money to start my shoe business. I thought the drugs will not be detected inside my jacket but I was caught and I am very sad.”
He attended Technical Secondary School in Ohafia, Abia State. He will soon be charged to court.
