Nigerian ex-convict excreted 65 wraps of cocaine
Lagos – A Nigerian ex-convict has excreted 65 wraps of cocaine and heroin he had ingested with the aim of trafficking them to Australia, the anti-drug agency said on Tuesday.
“The drug convict, Dunu Chukwunyere Enoch, was nabbed on February 16 2011 and has been under observation but completely expelled the drugs he swallowed last night,” the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency said.
It said the 39-year-old suspect excreted 65 wraps of substances that tested positive for both cocaine and heroin.
“Six of the wraps tested positive for heroin weighing 130g while 59 wraps were found to be cocaine weighing 900g,” it said.
The agency said Enoch who recently served out a jail term for a previous drug offence was about to board a flight to Sidney through Dubai when he was caught at the Lagos airport.
His arrest brought to seven the number of Nigerian suspected drug traffickers nabbed at the Lagos airport in the past week.
