A 56-year-old widow, Mrs Ajisegiri Kehinde Sidika has been apprehended by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.
The mother of four was caught while attempting to traffic 400g of cocaine concealed in her footwear to Makkah, Saudi Arabia.
The suspect claimed to be a businesswoman trading in adult and children’s wear on Lagos Island.
She was about to board a Qatar Airways flight to Saudi Arabia via Doha.
Also, attempts by a tricycle parts seller, Ayoade Kehinde Tayo to send 1kg of Tramadol 225mg and Rohypnol to Istanbul, Turkey via Cairo on an Egypt Airline flight was truncated.
NDLEA operatives arrested him at the airport as he tried to hand over the drugs hidden inside a bag of food items to an intending passenger, Idowu Ayoade.
Also, anti-narcotics officers attached to the SAHCO export shed of the airport foiled attempts by traffickers to smuggle consignments of cannabis and ecstasy tablets.
The drugs were concealed in three tubers of yam going to Dubai, UAE, last Wednesday.
The freight agent who presented the yams for export, Inegbu Ugochi Akunna was promptly arrested while the consignor, Ahmodu Sulaimon was also nabbed after that.
