Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) have arrested a man while importing heroin into Nigeria.

According to the report, security screening discovered he was carrying heroin wraps inside his body.

NDLEA spokesman Mitchell Ofoyeju confirmed the incident and said that the arrest took place after the suspect tested positive for narcotic ingestion. The suspect was carrying 66 wraps of heroin, weighing 1.115kg.

Ahmadu Garba, NDLEA Commander at the Lagos Airport, revealed that the suspect excreted 66 wraps of powdery substance that tested positive for heroin.

The suspect, 43-year-old Ogochukwu, in his statement confessed that he smuggled drugs to save his four-year old son who he said was on sick bed in Nairobi where he is also married to Kenyan lady.

He said: “I teach in a computer school at Onitsha, Anambra State.”

“This is my very first time of having anything to do with drugs. I smuggled drugs to save my sick child. The doctor said that my child has a hole in the heart. I met many people for help, but nobody was willing to help me except a drug baron.”

Chief Executive of the NDLEA Col Muhammad Mustapha Abdallah however said that the suspect would be charged to court for further prosecution because there was no excuse for committing crime.

He said: “Drug trafficking is a criminal offense and the suspect will be charged accordingly. The suspect’s action only complicated his condition because he is here facing a criminal charge while the responsibility of taking care of his sick son now rests solely on the wife.”
