Man caught with 6.5kg high grade Brazillian cocaine in Lagos
arrested by the men of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency
(NDLEA) with 6.5kg high grade Braziillian cocaine.
Bawaba was arrested at the Murtala Mohammed airport in Lagos as he
arrived aboard an Etihad flight. NDLEA officials found 364 wraps of
cocaine said to be worth N72million concealed in the luggage of the
trafficker. They said he took off from Malpensa Milan and collected
the drug on transit while in Abudhabi.
Bawaba told officials that he agreed to carry the drugs because of a
promise of N3.3million by his handlers. "This is my first time and I
was lured with N3.3million. I used to work at a construction company
in Madrid but due to the Economic meltdown, it has been difficult
securing a job". he said.
