NDLEA arrests single mother for inserting heroin in private part

National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has arrested Aladi Onyinye Juliet, a 31-year-old single mother for concealing 430 grammes of heroin in her vagina in a bid to avoid arrest.
The arrest took place at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) Lagos during the inward screening of passengers on an Emirate flight.
NDLEA commander at the Lagos airport, Mr. Hamza Umar while commenting on the incident said that the arrest was facilitated with the aid of scanning machines.

“During the inward screening of Emirate passengers, one Aladi Onyinye Juliet tested positive for narcotic ingestion. While under observation, the drug was subsequently expelled, field-tested and weighed” Hamza stated.
Preliminary investigation carried out by the NDLEA indicates that the suspect was returning from Pakistan where she was given the drug.
The suspect who hails from Abia State also has established link with some Pakistani drug traffickers who sponsored her trip in collaboration with some local accomplices.

In her statement, the suspect said that she engaged in drug trafficking to settle her bills.
 Juliet said, “I am a single mother and I need money to take care of myself and child. I used to sell clothes but the profit is inadequate to sustain my family. I would have earned half a million naira to pay for my rent and my child’s school fees if I had succeeded in bringing the drug. They paid for my return ticket and hotel accommodation. While in my hotel room, a Pakistani woman came to give me the drug. She also instructed me to conceal it in my private part to avoid arrest. Unfortunately, the NDLEA officers detected it”.
She is a 2007 graduate from Saint Anthony Secondary School, Aba, Abia State.
Chief Executive of the Agency, Ahmadu Giade said that the Agency will continue to detect narcotics with the help of technological tools.
“The NDLEA is investing in capacity building and modern equipment in drug detection. We hope to dislodge drug trafficking cartels through superior intelligence and best global practices. Investigation is on-going to arrest other members of the drug cartel connected to her case”, Giade stated.
The NDLEA called for more public support stressing that drug control thrives on the principle of collective responsibility.
The suspect will soon be charged to court.
