Two foreigners arrested for drug trafficking
Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) have arrested two foreigners with narcotic drugs just as suspected drug barons allegedly shifted their attentions to Akanu Ibiam International Airport (AIIA) Enugu.
The two suspected drug traffickers were caught during inward and outward screening of Ethiopian airline passengers.
They are 54-year-old Ghanaian comedian, Musah Iddrisu aka Charles Udunehi who bought drugs for $19,000 and a 20-year-old citizen of Congo DR, Inana Cedrick, who claimed to be a secondary school student in Tanzania.
The NDLEA Commander at the Enugu Airport, Nsikak-Abasi Udoh, said that Cedrick was caught with 1.500kg of heroin while Iddrisu was found to have ingested 450 grammes of cocaine.
“The Ghanaian comedian ingested 450 grammes of cocaine on his way to Thailand while the student from Congo DR imported 1.500kg of heroin into the country. We have also apprehended a Nigerian by name John Obi Nwadilichukwu who was to receive the student, collect the drug and pay him for smuggling the drugs,” Nsikak-Abasi stated.
