Officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency NDLEA have arrested five people including one Ijeoma Ojukwu, a niece to late Chief Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, and three others namely Victor Umeh, Uche Igwelo and Egbuche Fidelis Osiita over the trafficking of 2.24kg of substance believed to be cocaine from Brazil. Also being investigated is a staff of NDLEA. NDLEA officials believe that 48 year old Ijeoma who runs a restaurant in Brazil is believed to be a member of an international drug syndicate.

 
Speaking on the arrest, the agency’s commander at the airport, Ahmadu Garba ‎said a luggage tagged for Agina Fidelis Ejike, was abandoned at the arrival hall during inward screening of passengers on an Emirates flight on December 28.

“On January 1, 2016, one Egbuche Fidelis Osita came with authority letter mandating him to collect the bag. In the process, some white powdery substance weighing 2.24kg that tested positive for cocaine was discovered. The drug was neatly packed in four parcels concealed in false bottom of four female handbags.”
“My brother came from Brazil and could not find his bag. It was in the process of trying to get the bag out that we were arrested.”
Uche Igwelo, 36, a public administration graduate, said she was invited by Ijeoma to assist in collecting the bag.
“I sell kitchen utensil and I am married with a child. Ijeoma met me that I should help him to collect a bag at the airport. We were trying to get the bag when NDLEA officers arrested us,” Uche, an Anambra native told investigators, according to an official statement from NDLEA.
Egbuche Fidelis Osita, a 37-year-old student said that he was asked to collect the bag. “I am a 400 level student studying English Education at the Ekiti State University. My friend Victor Umeh was the person that asked me to help in claiming a luggage at the airport. We all drove to the airport where I was given a letter of authority and other documents of the passenger that came with the luggage. In the process of trying to collect the bag I was arrested. This is all I know about this incident,” Osita said.

sensationalism of headlines is a major problem in Nigeria. The LAdy wasn't the only one arrested and the headline reads as if she is the ring leader of a cocaine importation cartel.

Poster, u must be out of your mind trying to drag Ikemba's family name to the mud. Let me ask u, how many Obafemis do u have in Yoruba land? How many Olajides, How many Aremus, Arewas, etc do u have in Yoruba? If u must know then, Ojukwu is regular Igbo name; unless u interviewed this lady (although poster, u used both she and he for the same person in your story) we will not believe u; also if u have made up the story, then wait for a law suit coming because the family does not take nonsense from fools.
