According to the site, Ifeanyi and Adibe were arrested on arrival at the airport and after scans discovered that they had ingested the drugs into the country, they were made to defecate 252.11 grammes of the narcotic.

The two suspects had allegedly swallowed a combined 70 wraps of the cocaine and were even lucky the drugs did not burst while in their stomachs as that would be instant death.
