Iwuozor Edward Chinedu, a Nigerian man who is based in Athens, Greece, has been arrested by NDLEA operatives.

He was nabbed at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport with cocaine and heroin with a gross weight of 1.30kgs and 900grams respectively concealed in his bag.

A statement released by NDLEA spokesperson, Femi Babafemi, says Chinedu was debarked from an Ethiopian airline flight on Friday 3rd February after officers in the tarmac team of NDLEA intercepted two bags during a secondary check exercise at the foot of the aircraft.

When the bags were searched in the presence of Chinedu and other airport stakeholders, two big pellets wrapped with foil papers and some sprinkles of pepper were recovered from each of the two sides of one of the bags. The pellets were used to construct false walls at the sides of the bag.

The two parcels contained substances that tested positive to cocaine and heroin with a gross weight of 1.30kgs and 900grams respectively. During preliminary interview, Chinedu claimed he came to Nigeria three months ago to do a surgery, which he was not comfortable doing in Athens. He further claimed he was given the bag to deliver in Greece for a fee of two million naira (N2,000,000).” Babafemi said
