2 Brazilians Arrested at Lagos Airport after Cocaine worth N310m was Found Hidden in Food Cans in their Luggage



Dias Dos Santos Marcia Cristina and Lima Pereira Erick Diego

Two Brazilians have been arrested by officers of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) over alleged drug trafficking.

The duo – Dias Dos Santos Marcia Cristina, 36 and Lima Pereira Erick Diego, 20 – who traveled from São Paulo, Brazil, claimed to be tourists.

A statement by NDLEA spokesperson, Mitchell Ofoyeju said that the drugs were carefully hidden in food cans inside their luggage.

9.4kg of cocaine was found in Dias’ bag while 14.465kg of the drug was found in Lima’s bag.

The estimated street value of the total seizure is said to be N310 million.

The cans where the drug was hidden

“The tins were factory-sealed such that officers had to cut them open to discover the concealed drugs. Several canned drugs had been uncovered at the Lagos airport in the past. This development is not a surprise to narcotic investigators because drug cartels are always adopting new strategies of smuggling drugs,” Ofoyeju said.

    They are smiling because they KNOW nothing will happen to them. In Nigeria you can get away with anything if you are:
    1. Rich
    2. A foreigner
    Lawless nation.

      Exactly. And I won’t be surprised if one of the officers was making passes at the lady, there and then.

      So therefore, Nigerians are not the only ones that commit crime.

      Don’t mind them. Both of dem are smiling. By the time they eat watery beans with animals with wings floating in it, they will know that Jesus is Lord. That is what l wish for them. But, knowing Nigerian security personnel, these lot will get VVIP treatment. Nonsense.

      Honestly, they don’t even look like they got caught. No stress looking serious pose. They look relaxed.

      They cannot come and die. Is it frowning that will deliver them from trouble. They have been caught already so why frown. As if frowning one’s face brings automatic deliverance. Since the world should see their pictures via media, it is better to smile. I totally condemn their actions and they should be punished but frowning could make them feel suicidal. Smile and turn a new leaf. Give your life to Jesus.
