The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency has arrested one Anita Ogbonna, resident of Brazil for being in possession of 100 pellets of cocaine concealed in her private parts.

The mother of three was arrested at Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on arrival from Sao Paulo, Brazil aboard Qatar Air.

“Upon a proper search, 12 wraps of cocaine inserted in her private parts were extracted, while another 88 pellets stuffed in socks were discovered hidden in her handbag,” the NDLEA Director of Media and Advocacy, Femi Babafemi, said in a statement on Sunday.

The agency which switched into action questioned Ogbonna who revealed that her three children are domiciled in Brazil while claiming that her husband died three years ago.

Babafemi said, “She confessed that she decided to traffic the illicit drug to raise money for the burial of her father scheduled for July 22 in Imo State. She said one Emeka, alias KC, also based in Brazil, gave her the drug to deliver in Nigeria for a fee of $3,000.

“Ogbonna said she pushed the wraps of cocaine into her private parts after her attempts to swallow the pellets failed. The suspect, who owns a shop where she sells African foodstuffs in Brazil, further claimed that she had to drop her three young children with a Kenyan lady who is her neighbour in Brazil before she embarked on the quick-money journey.”

İn a similar vein, narcotic officers working with a courier company in Lagos were also applauded for intercepting 500grams of ketamine concealed in the walls of a wooden box filled with bitter kola that originated from Douala, Cameroon, and heading for the United States of America.
