I was forced to smuggle cocaine due to ill health-Female drug traffiker(Photo)
Officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) have arrested a 44-year-old woman, Abdulrasaq Modinat Alake, at Lagos International Airport.
Reports made it known that the woman, who is a trader, was caught with 4.450 kilogramme of cocaine at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos. When the Kwara state indegene was quizzed by the officials, she gave her ill-health as an excuse. She said she became involved in drug trafficking after she suffered an ailment that took away all her resources. She said:“I was married but later separated. I am the only person taking care of myself.”
She was arrested alongside another woman who said her husband’s lack of support pushed her into the illegal drug business.
However, NDLEA in a statement yesterday, October 2, said the two suspected female drug traffickers are currently assisting narcotic investigators with relevant facts relating to the exportation of 4.450kg of cocaine to India and 7kg of cannabis to China.
