A 32-year-old lady, Chizoba Vivian Anya, has been arrested by officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) for allegedly excreting wraps of substance which tested positive for methamphetamine, on-board a Qatar Airline flight from Malaysia.

The suspect was said to have aroused suspicion from other passengers on-board the flight following her frequent visits to the toilet. On arrival at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA) Lagos, three wraps of methamphetamine were found in her possession.

NDLEA commander at the Lagos Airport, Mr. Hamza Umar, said the suspect while under observation excreted two additional wraps of the same substance.

“The suspect was found with three wraps which she excreted in the aircraft. While she was under observation at the Lagos airport, she excreted two additional wraps of drugs. The five wraps which tested positive for methamphetamine weighed 80 grammes.”

Preliminary investigation also revealed that the suspect left from Ghana where she ingested the drugs enroute to Malaysia. In Malaysia, she was denied entry and made to board another flight back to Nigeria. She started excreting the drugs at the airport in Malaysia.

In her statement, the suspect said she was offered half a million naira to smuggle the drugs to Malaysia.

“I was promised the sum of half a million naira but my problem started when I had immigration problem in Malaysia. I was denied entry and made to return to Nigeria after two days. While in the aircraft, I excreted three wraps and two other wraps in the NDLEA office,” Anya stated.

The suspect, who hails from Onitsha, Anambra State and yet to be married said she just completed her Higher National Diploma (HND) in Business Administration at the Federal Polytechnic Oko, Anambra State.

“I just completed my HND programme and I am from a very poor family. I wanted to use the money they promised me to assist my siblings by smuggling the drug to Malaysia,” she said.

Reacting, Chairman/Chief Executive of the NDLEA, Ahmadu Giade warned against the get-rich-quick syndrome.

“Drug traffickers must avoid the get-rich-quick syndrome and understand that a good name is better than ill-gotten wealth that comes without peace of mind,” Giade stated.

Giade also urged passengers to be vigilant and report suspicious passengers to authorities.

The suspect will soon be charged to court.
