Woman, 48 vomits 15 wraps of cocaine, excretes 65 at NAIA

A woman, Mrs. Saidat Bola Hassan allegedly vomited fifteen wraps of white powdery substances that tested positive for cocaine at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport (NAIA) Abuja and was apprehended by officers of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).
The 48 year old who was enroute Jedda, Saudi Arabia on an Egypt Air flight was discovered was discovered to have ingested 80 wraps of cocaine weighing 904 grammesNDLEA
NDLEA Abuja airport commander Mr. Hamisu Lawan said that efforts were made to protect her from any harm resulting from drug ingestion.
“As soon as we discovered that the suspected wraps she vomited tested positive for cocaine, we took measures to ensure her safety by preventing any harm that may result from drug ingestion. While under observation, she excreted sixty-five (65) similar wraps. In all, she ingested eighty wraps of cocaine weighing 904 grammes; her case is under investigation” Hamisu stated.
Chairman/Chief Executive of the NDLEA, Col. Mohammad Mustapha Abdallah (rtd) who expressed satisfaction with her arrest said that her action negates every principle of good parenting. “This is gross ineptitude on the part of a mother saddled with the responsibility of nurturing her children into future leaders. I am glad that she did not die from drug ingestion and she is alive to face trial. Besides escaping the risk of swallowing cocaine, this arrest also saved her because drug trafficking in Saudi Arabia is punishable by death. She will soon be charged to court because the law must run its full course. I expect the general public to learn lessons from this case that drug trafficking leads to pain, ignominy and untimely death”.
The NDLEA boss added that “my approach to drug control is both pragmatic and scientific. Every action taken must be based on best global principles while lessons learnt will influence our implementation strategies in our day to day operations. The Agency will continue to sensitize members of the public by presenting facts and figures of drug trafficking as well as the larger picture of its ruin and devastation”.
Mrs. Saidat Bola Hassan, a native of Idiroko, Ogun State who resides in Lagos Island claimed to be a business woman dealing in clothing materials. According to her, “I am a business woman and I sell women clothes at Balogun market. I used to buy my goods from Ghana. I was introduced into the drug business by a friend and business partner. The drug was brought from Abidjan, Ivory Coast and we were to share the proceeds equally. Until my arrest, I never knew that the cocaine I ingested would have led to my death in Saudi Arabia. I thank God for keeping me alive”.
