Men of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, have arrested 46 year old businessman Tochukwu Prosper Nzom who inserted 225gm of cocaine into his anus while preparing to board an Air France flight to Paris from the Muritala Mohammed International Airport yesterday June 4th.

According to a statement by the spokesperson of NDLEA, Mr Mitchell Ofoyeju, two other drug traffickers, identified as Idehen Prince Henry and Ilemena Chinedu Peter were also arrested with 915 grammes and 1.225kg of cocaine as they arrived Nigeria from Brazil on an Emirates flight.

When interrogated, 46 year old Nzom (pictured above) who hails from Anambra state and is married with two children, said he would have made $1, 500 if he had succeeded in trafficking the banned substance.
"I was drinking with friends when I heard them talking about drugs. I actually volunteered to smuggle drugs because of my financial situation. They agreed to pay me $1,500 because it was only three wraps weighing 225 grammes. I am from a poor home,” he said

On his part, Idehen Prince Henry said he was promised $2, 500 by the people who sent him to traffic the drug
"I am from Enugu State. I am married to a Brazilian lady and we have a child. I work as a sales boy in a supermarket. I dropped out of school in Junior Secondary Class 3. I overheard some of my friends discussing about drugs and I indicated interest. That was how it started. The drug was packed in a bag for me and they promised to pay me $2,500. I am so sad, disappointed and ashamed of myself.”he said
The suspects will soon be charged to court.

It's good to criticise but try and use the right words next time. TRY AND FIND OUT THE MEANING OF RACE FROM YOUR DICTIONARY! !!

my fellow nigerians lets not be too quick to judge
(igbo like to do drugs for money)
(yoruba like juju money)
(hausa just like any kind of money)
we are one people and one race.
I had the same mind set until I started to mix with other races and I realised we are their common enemy
When you go 1 or 2yrs without any physical interaction with your own race, trust me you will love them and uphold their beauty

I used to look down on other africans, Ghana ppl, not me.
But when the Lord opens your eyes you will see the beauty in all africans.
Stay blessed

No just mind them. If u read well, there were three culprits. Two Igbo obviously and one yoruba guy. The Idehen guy is obviously yoruba but nothing was said of his state or history. Then the Igbo guys were well written and also they coiled the story of the Idehen guy to appear Igbo.

Anyway shame on the proprietor of this info from NDLEA bcos it was obviously engineered to tannish just the name of a tribe and exonerate the other.
Anyway for your information, lovers of good and correct news in Naijapals, IDEHEN is not an Igbo name

Bro thank God they comprise of 90% of drug traffickers in Nigeria and not 100%. May i ask you, can you just ratio the remaining 10%? ify can not do that it means that the remaining 10% are from your tribe or might even be your brothers or relatives.
