Bricklayer Ingests 83 Wraps Of Cocaine

Post by SKOOKID on Sat Aug 10, 2013 10:54 am

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency has
apprehended a 46-year-old bricklayer, Chukwudi
Ugankwo, at the Murtala Muhammed International
Airport Lagos, after testing positive to drug
ingestion. It was learnt that Ugamkwo ingested 83
wraps of cocaine, weighing two kilogrammes. The
NDLEA said it was one of the highest quantities of
drugs ingested at a time by a suspect this year.
NDLEA Airport Commander, Hamza Umar, said
Ugankwo was on his way back from Brazil when he
was caught.

He said, “Ugankwo was detected with the help of
scanning machines during the screening of
passengers on an Asky Airline flight. The case is
under investigation.” Ugankwo, who was said to
have four children, lived at Alor village, Anambra
State. He said, “I am a bricklayer at Alor. I was lured
into selling our family land in other to travel out in
search of job opportunities. “I got to Brazil on July
10, 2013; things were not as rosy as I hoped
because I could not get any job. That was when the
idea of drug trafficking was sold to me. I had to
swallow 83 wraps of cocaine.”

Chairman of the NDLEA, Mr. Ahmadu Giade, told
PUNCH Metro that drug barons had now resorted
to recruiting drug couriers from the villages. He
said, “Recent investigations have shown that drug
barons now have agents who move from village to
village in search of drug mules. Members of the
public are urged to turn down such requests.” In
another development, Nigeria’s most beautiful girl
2013, Miss Anna Banner has been cleared by the
NDLEA for the forthcoming Miss World Beauty
contest in Indonesia.

Banner was received at the NDLEA headquarters at
Ikoyi by the Head of Public Affairs, Mr. Ofoyeju
Mitchell, on behalf of Giade. He said, “We are
optimistic that you will fly the country’s flag high
above others. Your request for visa clearance
certificate was approved on merit having met the
stipulated requirements. “NDLEA visa clearance is a
policy where Nigerians travelling to drug source
countries are screened by the Agency and
recommended to embassies for visa issuance.”
