ndlea_2In what might sound as a bizarre tale, a mother of four children, Chinelo Okorom Lynnette, 36, has been busted by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) for smuggling 685 grammes of cocaine, which she inserted in her private part.

She was nabbed by eagle-eyed operatives of the NDLEA at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) Lagos, during the inward screening of passengers on an Ethiopian airline flight from Addis Ababa.

Lagos airport commander of NDLEA, Mr. Hamza Umar said that the suspect ingested few wraps of the illicit drug and inserted others in her vagina.

“The suspect tested positive for drug ingestion and vaginal insertion. She however expelled a total of 685 grammes of substance that tested positive for cocaine while under observation at the airport”, Hamza stated.

In her statement, the suspect, who is a food vendor, narrated the circumstances that pushed her into drug trafficking.

She said: “I am a food vendor at Ajangbadi, Lagos and have never been involved in crime. I am a victim of man’s cruelty to man. My husband abandoned me with four children two years ago.

“I work hard to pay their fees and ensure their proper upkeep. The last straw that devastated me was when the landlord forcefully ejected me. I had nowhere to turn to for solace.

“I was crying like a baby when a man came to console me. I have never met him in my life. He asked me to wipe my tears and promised to introduce me to importation business.

“I felt he was God sent until he sponsored my trip to Addis Ababa. When I got to Ethiopia, he told me to take cocaine to Nigeria. Initially I disagreed but he threatened to recover his investment at all cost”, the suspect stated.

Chairman/Chief Executive of NDLEA, Ahmadu Giade noted that drug traffickers always change routes and tactics.

“Going to Addis Ababa to smuggle cocaine into Nigeria is one of the tricks employed by drug trafficking syndicates. Cocaine is not known to come from Addis but we were able to detect it because of our vigilance.

“We are prepared to counter the activities of drug kingpins and bring them to justice. We look forward to fruitful progress in our investigation”, Giade stated.

The NDLEA boss advised members of the public to be wary of the tricks used by drug syndicates adding that Lynnette’s action is shameful.

The suspect will soon be charged to court.
