55-year-old woman excretes pellets of Cocaine

55-year-old intending pilgrim Binuyo Basira, was arrested at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport last week after testing positive to narcotic ingestion.

In a recent report, she excreted a total of 82 pellets of cocaine weighing 931grammes which are reportedly worth N10 million.

The offence is punishable by death in Saudi Arabia.

The suspect was arrested during the outward screening of passengers on an Emirate flight to Medina through Dubai. According to her her she was tempted into the act because she needed to expand her business.

“I wanted to expand my cosmetic business but I have no money. My sponsor offered to foot my expenses to Saudi on pilgrimage. I was excited until I was asked to take drugs along. I wanted to decline but considering the offer of a million Naira, I accepted. I swallowed the drugs in Lagos and took flight to Abuja on my way to Medina but I was caught in the process,” she said

National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) Chairman, Col. Muhammad Abdallah (Rtd), described her action as shameful and discreditable

“It is a shameful and discreditable act for a 55-year-old mother, going on holy pilgrimage, to ingest narcotics. This is shocking and a clear indication of her inability to effectively discharge parental responsibility. The agency shall invoke the powers of the law against her and others caught indulging in production/trafficking in narcotic drugs,” he said.
