The Nigerian Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has arrested Aladi Onyinye Juliet, 31, for concealing 430 grammes of heroine in her vagina.
This report was contained in a statement issued by The Head of Public Affairs, Mr Mitchell Ofoyeju, Thursday in Lagos.He quoted the NDLEA commander at the Lagos airport, Mr Hamza Umar, saying that the arrest was aided by the screening machines installed at the airport.
It was reported that during inward screening, the suspect tested positive to narcotic ingestion. Prelimnary investigation revealed the suspect was returning from Pakistan where she was transporting the drugs from.
In her statement, the suspect said she engaged in trafficking to pay her bills. “I am a single mother and I need money to take care of myself and child. She is also reported to have said:
"I used to sell clothes but the profit is inadequate to sustain my family.I would have earned half a million naira to pay for my rent and my child’s school fees if I had succeeded in bringing the drug. They paid for my return ticket and hotel accommodation. While in my hotel room, a Pakistani woman came to give me the drug. She also instructed me to conceal it in my private part to avoid arrest. Unfortunately, the NDLEA officers detected it,"
The spokesman said she would soon be charged to court.
