Two Businessmen Excrete 193 Cocaine Pellets In NDLEA detention



Two businessmen arrested by operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja for cocaine ingestion have both excreted a total of 193 pellets of the illicit drug after three days in observatory custody.

The traffickers, Onoh Ebere, 49, and Christian Ifeanyi, 47, were intercepted at the Abuja airport on May 10 upon their arrival from Uganda via Addis Ababa, onboard Ethiopian Airlines flight ET 951.

The spokesman of the anti-narcotics agency, Femi Babafemi, who revealed this in a statement on Sunday, noted that though both suspects have businesses in Nigeria, their main source of income has been drug trafficking.

Babafemi said, “They both travelled to Uganda and from there crossed over to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia where they picked the consignments before returning to Abuja with Lagos as their final destination.

“After days in the excretion room, Ebere Onoh excreted a total of 100 pellets weighing 2.137kgs while Christian Ifeanyi expelled 93 pellets hidden in his stomach with a gross weight of 1.986kgs,” Babafemi disclosed.
