A popular Ghanaian comedian, Musah Iddrisu, and a Congolese,  Inana Cedrick, have been arrested by the National Drug Law Enforcement   Agency, NDLEA, for ingesting drug.

Iddrisu and Cedrick were  arrested during the inward and outward screening of  Ethiopian airline  passengers respectively at the Akanu Ibiam  International Airport,  Enugu.

NDLEA Commander at the airport, Mr.  Udoh Nsikak-Abasi, said,  “Iddrisu was found to have ingested 450 grammes of cocaine. He was on  his way to Thailand.  Cedrick was caught with  1.500 kilogrammes of  heroin which he tried importing into the country.

“A third suspect, a Nigerian, John  Nwadilichukwu, was also arrested.  He  was to receive Cedrick at the  airport, collect the drug and pay him for  smuggling the drug.”

Twenty-year-old Cedrick, who claimed to be a secondary school student in Tanzania,  said, “I was given the
drug in Nairobi by a Nigerian woman who told me  to give the drug to her husband, Nwadilichukwu, in Enugu.
“I  wanted to use the money they promised to pay me in buying beads for  sale in Tanzania. I am a secondary school student from a poor home.”

Iddrisu, aka Charles Udunehi, who bought the cocaine for $19,000, said he had wanted to sell them in Thailand.
He said, “I got involved in drug trafficking because of my financial predicament.
I bought the drugs in Ghana, ingested it and came to Enugu airport. As  it is a new airport, I felt the security will not be like other  airports,  but I was wrong.”

Chairman of the NDLEA, Mr. Ahmadu Giade, said adequate efforts had been made to apprehend drug traffickers at the Enugu airport.

He said, “We have already deployed our officials to the Enugu airport  before it commenced international flights. Adequate security measures   have been put in place to apprehend drug traffickers at the airport.”
