A 65-year old grandmother, who is also a mother of six, was on Wednesday arrested for alleged drug trafficking.
NDLEA said the suspect, Hassan Fatimat Abike, was to board a British Airways plane at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos, southwest Nigeria, when she was arrested with substances suspected to be cocaine.
She was caught during the screening of British Airways passengers to London. The cocaine found in her possession was packed in balloons and prepared into the shape of the plastic bottles. It was also wrapped in black polythene inside 10 plastic bottles of local herbal mixtures. And each bottle was neatly sealed to avoid suspicion.
Investigations revealed that she is also known as Chika Okoye and speaks Yoruba and Ibo fluently.
