Motorcycle parts dealer arrested with cannabis
The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has arrested a 39 -year-old motorcycle parts dealer, Ogbodo Chibuzor David.
He was nabbed for trying to smuggle 11.06kg of dried weeds that tested positive for cannabis to China.
The suspect who concealed the drugs in various food items was arrested following the discovery of cannabis inside his bags at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.
The NDLEA commander at the airport, Mr. Hamza Umar said the suspect was to board a Qatar Airline flight when he was nabbed.
He said, “We have apprehended one Ogbodo Chibuzor David with dried weeds that tested positive for cannabis.
“The suspect who deals in motorcycle parts at Nnewi was found with 21 parcels of cannabis hidden inside his bags on his way to China. His travel route as contained in his ticket is Lagos to Doha and from Doha to Guangzhou.”
The suspect told investigators that he wanted to sell the drugs and use the profit to buy motorcycle parts in China.
“I gave a business partner the sum of 30,000 dollars to supply me goods and he disappeared. That brought my business to its knees and I have been struggling to take care of my wife and child since a year ago.
“I met many people for financial assistance but nobody was willing to help until I was wrongly advised. A friend told me to smuggle cannabis to China,” Ogbodo stated.
