A suspected drug trafficker, Mrs. Sekinatu Adaba, has allegedly excreted 58 wraps of substance suspected to be cocaine.

Abada, who allegedly excreted the substance under the close watch of officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, was arrested at the Port Harcourt International Airport, Rivers State.

The NDLEA Commander, Port Harcourt International Airport, Mr. Olutekunbi Davies, said the 54-year-old widow was arrested on May 23, 2012, as she was trying to board a Lufthansa Airline on her way to London via Frankfurt.

Davies explained that Adaba was immediately taken to the Military Hospital where an X-ray scanner proved that she had ingested 839 grammes of cocaine.

He said that 58 wraps of the substance were excreted by the suspected drug trafficker within three days of her arrest.

Davies said, “On May 23, 2012, at about 8:30pm, a female drug suspect, Mrs. Adaba Onitemi Sekinatu ’54,’ was arrested while attempting to board a Lufthansa Airline on her way to London via Frankfurt.

“She was taken to the Military Hospital in Port Harcourt where the X-ray scanner used on her proved positive for ingestion of substance suspected to be cocaine. She has since excreted 58 wraps weighing 839 grammes.”

Davies explained that the X-ray scanning machine installed by the NDLEA at the Port Harcourt International Airport was removed as a result of the ongoing construction work at the airport.

He, however, warned that the removal of the machine from the airport would not stop his men from spotting and arresting drug peddlers that wanted to use the airport to smuggle hard drugs to other countries.

Davies said that the machine would be installed after the completion of the ongoing renovation work at the airport.

He said the suspect would soon be prosecuted while the exhibits would be presented in court to demonstrate her culpability.

Though the suspect refused to speak with journalists, an NDLEA official said Adaba claimed that this was her first time of dealing in the illicit business.

Adaba had told officials of the agency that she was lured into drug trafficking by a friend  at a party in Lagos after she lost her husband.
