SUICIDE MISSION! Pregnant Woman Caught With Ingested Cocaine

The level of greed among Nigerian ladies in recent times seems to be getting out of hand. Over the years, newsmen observed that criminal minded women have grown from just being secret prostitutes to road-side hustlers, to working with armed robbery gangs and leading robbery operations. 

 However, it appeared trafficking in hard drugs is where the ‘fastest’ money is and many are getting their fingers burnt in a bid to get rich quick through this means. The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has arrested three suspected female drug traffickers while smuggling 4.500kg of narcotics in under wears and hair wigs. 

All three suspects were caught over the weekend at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja. Two of the suspects who were to board an Egypt airline flight to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, through Cairo were caught with 3.6kg of methamphetamines neatly hidden in customised under wears and hair wigs. 

Another female suspect who said she’s three months pregnant was found to have ingested an alarming 900 grammes of cocaine. NDLEA Commander at the Abuja Airport, Mr. Hamisu Lawan gave the names of the suspects as Ms Anene Blessing Iruoma, age 26, Ms Obiakor Maryann Okwudili, age 34 and Ms Mbechi Obiageli Susan, age 38. 

 According to Mr Hamisu,“Anene Blessing Iruoma and Ms Obiakor Maryann Okwudili concealed 1.7kg and 1.90kg of methamphetamine in under wears and hair wigs while Mbechi Obiageli Susan ingested 900 grammes of substance that tested positive for cocaine… The suspects are helping narcotic officials in our investigation. 

I commend the level of cooperation among security Agencies at the airport. I also thank the management of the Federal Airport Authority for their significant role in these arrests”. newsmen gathered that the three ladies may spend 15 years in prison upon conviction.
