 The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has foiled attempt by one Okorie Cyprian Raymond to smuggle 12.05kg of cocaine into the country at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Command, Abuja.


The agency said Okorie, 38, was arrested during the inward clearance of Ethiopian Airline flight 911 from Sao Paulo, Brazil en-route Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

According to a statement by the Principal Staff Officer, Public Affairs, Jonah Achema, on Thursday, the cocaine was carefully packed in drink sachets of pineapple and lemon flavor and concealed in a suitcase.

Achema said Okorie claimed to have no knowledge of what was in the suitcase, which was given to him by one Uche.
