FAAN AVSEC MAKIA apprehends Saudi-bound female drug trafficker

SECURITY seems to have been stepped up at the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport as intensive screening has led to the capture of yet another traveler with criminal intent, this time a drug courier who was intent on implicating yet another innocent by inserting hard drugs in her bag.

Aviation Security (AVSEC) at the Kano Airport apprehended a passenger, Hassan Maimuna Barde, a Nigerian with passport no. A10408607 who was discovered to have concealed substances identified as drugs inside her bag, attempting to beat the screening process.
