Nov 9, 2014 – Man Hides Cocaine Drug In Slippers, NDLEA Arrests Shoe Merchant At Lagos Airport

NDLEA yesterday nabbed a suspected drug dealer who arrived Nigeria from Brazil with two bags of cocaine-laced shoes.

The cocaine drug was found in the luggage compartment of an Etihad flight from Brazil to Lagos yesterday by officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA.

According to NDLEA, the suspect, Mama Solomon, who had checked in the luggage claimed he was ‎a shoe merchant.

 “the suspect claimed to be a shoe merchant, however, during interrogation it was revealed that he only used the shoes as a way of concealing cocaine. He had two bags containing female shoes and hand bags. The drug was discovered in the soles of the female shoes and he was immediately arrested,” – Hamza Umar, NDLEA commander at the Lagos Airport said.

NDLEA said the 27-year old suspect, however, claimed he was given the bag by his friend in Brazil to take to Nigeria.

Read his confessional statement below:

I live and work in Brazil. I was given the drug with a promise that I will be handsomely rewarded if I successfully deliver the bag in Nigeria. They also assured me that somebody will help me in collecting the bags at the airport in Nigeria. Unfortunately, officers demanded to search my bag and in the process, the cocaine was found in my bag,”.

NDLEA said the suspect who hails form Enugu state is currently in their custody.
