NDLEA Arrests Italy Bound Female Drug Trafficker

Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, have arrested an Italy-bound female passenger and a 38-year-old pregnant woman for drug trafficking.

Director, Media & Advocacy of the agency, Femi Babafemi, who disclosed this in a statement on Sunday, September 19, said operatives continued their nationwide offensive action against drug traffickers in the past week, seizing hundreds of kilograms of illicit substances at the airports, courier firms, hideouts and destroying hectares of cannabis farms in the remote forests.

“Attempts by a female passenger, Isesele Obehi and one Emmanuel Chibuzor Omebere to export illicit drugs to Europe through the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, MMIA, Lagos and Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja was thwarted by narcotic officers who arrested them shortly before they boarded their flights,” the statement read.

While Isesele was nabbed on Saturday 11th September 2021 during outward clearance of Ethiopian Airline flight at Gate B departure hall of the Lagos airport on her way to Milan, Italy with three hundred and twelve (312) sachets of Tramadol, weighing 1.5kg, concealed in crayfish and dried vegetables, Chibuzor was equally caught with 137.45 grams of the same drug concealed in foodstuff at the Abuja airport on Thursday 2nd Sept during outward clearance of Turkish Airline flight to Istanbul, Turkey.

Babafemi stated that the pregnant woman, Kate Ngozi Nwuju was arrested on Tuesday 14th Sept at her residence in Rumueme, Mile 4 area of Port Harcourt, Rivers state with 4.5kilograms of cannabis following intelligence that she sells drugs.

In the same vein, efforts by desperate traffickers to export varying sizes of consignments containing cocaine, heroin, and other illicit drugs through courier firms were also foiled.
