HE LIVES in Italy as a businessman. His Italian friends call him a ‘big man’. Latest facts have shown that Nnakeanyi Chukwuka King was caught with cocaine hidden in body cream. He arrived in Nigeria on Ethiopian Airlines via a flight from Sao Paulo, Brazil through Addis Ababa. King was intercepted during the inward clearance of passengers at the E-Arrival Hall of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA). During a search of his luggage, 40 parcels of Cocaine concealed inside bottles of body cream with a gross weight of 9.70kg were recovered from the suspect. When quizzed by security operatives, King blames the Devil for luring him into act, “the Devil made me do it”.

Also on the same day, operatives arrested a freight agent, Rafiu Abbas at the NAHCO Export Shed of the airport when he presented a cargo containing 19.15kg cannabis going to London.

The illicit substance was concealed inside plastic containers labeled as “African Dishes” and packed in a bag.

In a related development, a 63-year-old Vincent Obimma was on Friday 11th March arrested with 350grams of cocaine and 150grams of heroin by NDLEA operatives at a park in the Apapa seaport corridor in Lagos.

The drugs were hidden in industrial torch packets heading to Kano, Kano state.
