Officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) have discovered wraps of narcotics in the collar of a passenger’s jacket at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) Lagos, The Nation reports.

The suspect, Agwu Samuel, 31, was arrested shortly after he disembarked from the aircraft on his way from Sao Paulo, Brazil.

According to Ahmadu Garba, the NDLEA commander at the Lagos airport, “Ten wraps of cocaine weighing 110 grammes were found inside the collar of his jacket during screening of passengers on a South Africa Airline flight from Brazil through Johannesburg. The drug which was carefully hidden inside his jacket tested positive for cocaine and investigation is ongoing.”

The suspect, in his statement said:

I used to sell shoes in Togo until I lost goods worth N3 million. This negatively affected my business and made me to travel to Brazil in a desperate search for greener pastures.

After a fruitless search for job in Brazil for four months, I decided to smuggle drugs to get some money to start my shoe business. I thought the drugs will not be detected inside my jacket but I was caught and I am very sad.

    They must have suspected something fishy when they saw him wearing a bloody winter jacket inside the musty heat of MMIA.
    Who does that?

    There is an increase in drug smuggling this days. There isn’t a day that go by without a case of a drug peddler getting caught. Drug isn’t even as lucrative as people paint it to be yet you face jail time and embarrassment for it!

    Mehn!!! So tired of all these people messing up our reputation. The rest of us get subjected to stupid rules cuz of all these crap. My flight was almost cancelled today due to an embargo on some countries. Was so close to crying, like i just worked my butts off the last two weeks for this vacation only for them to be telling me nonsense at the airport. I don’t work hard for all these profiling. Just be content with what you have people. Naija can’t be great if some of yall keep doing drugs and yahoo yahoo.
