A man has been caught with 120 grammes of cocaine in his anus.
A man carrying cocaine in his anus, has been arrested at the Murtala International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos.
The man, Maxwell Obumneme Ikeh, who was on his way back from Brazil, tested positive for six wraps of cocaine weighing 120 grammes inserted into his anus.
The suspect explained that this was his first time involving himself in such act.
I am married with a child and live in Lagos. I sell children diapers and clothes but travelled to Brazil two months ago expecting to buy my goods at a cheaper price. In the process, I decided to smuggle 120 grammes of cocaine for monetary gains. I inserted six wraps of the drugs into my anus yet it was detected and that was how I was arrested. This is my first time.
Another suspect caught with cocaine claimed he was a spare part dealer in ladipo market and was only helping a friend send food stuff to South Africa.
