Celestine Ikechukwu Okonkwo, who was returning from Sao Paulo, was arrested at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, after he tested positive to cocaine ingestion. He later excreted 70 wraps of cocaine weighing 1.326kg. He sold
used clothes at Idumota market, in Lagos, before he was lured abroad with a promise of better job.
“It took me about 7 hours to swallow 70 wraps of cocaine. They promised to pay me N400k when I get to Nigeria.
