The operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency(NDLEA), have arrested a fak£ couple, Mr Ilonzeh Kingsley Onyebuchi and Mrs Ilonzeh Roseline Nonyelum who were disguised as going for medical treatment in India, for ingesting 184 wraps of coc@in£ weighing 3.322 kilograms with 100grams of the dr¥g also concealed in the woman’s priv@t£ part.
The two suspects were intercepted at Screening Point 1, Terminal 1 of the international wing of the Lagos airport on Tuesday, August 1, 2023, while attempting to board an Ethiopian airline flight to India. Though their travel documents show consistency in their names and depict them as a couple, an NDLEA officer however decided to subject them to a body scan. The scan confirmed they both ingested dr¥gs as a result of which they were later placed on excr£tion observation at the Agency’s facility.
This was revealed in a statement signed by the agency’s Director, Media & Advocacy, Femi Babafemi, on Sunday, August 6, 2023. He stated that while the couple’s travel documents identify the man as Ilonzeh Kingsley Onyebuchi and the lady to be Ilonzeh Roseline Nonyelum, preliminary investigation revealed that the intending passengers were not a couple but obtained the travel documents in the same surname to beat security checks at the airport. The lady later gave her real name as Ngogbike Nkechi.
During her interview, she confessed that she was recruited in her church in Aba, Abia state where she lives. The suspect, Ilonzeh Roseline Nonyelum (aka Ngogbike Nkechi) stated further that she is a divorcee, and that Kingsley with whom she was travelling is not her husband but connected only for the ill#cit dr¥g business trip.
