Babafemi said the 40-year-old suspect from Ikpoba Okha Local Government area of Edo State was arrested at the departure lounge of the airport during an outward clearance of Ethopian aircraft 911 enroute Abuja-Addis Ababa-Italy.

The statement reads: “Under interrogation, Odeh claimed he has been living in Italy since 2015 when he got into the country through Libya. He said he works as a labourer in a farm in Italy, and is paid about 50 euros a day. He also works as a ‘flier distributor’ when the farming season is over and gets as much as 50 euros a day.
