Dec 4, 2014 – 1 Of 4 Nigerians Arrested With Cocaine Drug At Lagos Airport Confesses “I’m A 1st Time Dealer”

Asaba-based Music Producer, Michael Okafor Arrested With Cocaine At Lagos Airport

Chukwuenyem Obi, a 48-year-old father of three arrested by Nigeria’s anti-drug agency, NDLEA has told officials of the agency that he ventured into drug business in order to fund  his children education.

Obi was arrested alongside a woman (mum of 7), Ifeoma Ezeano, Michael Okafor and Gilbert Kelvin with 41.6kg of cocaine with the street value of N374.6million.

South Africa-based Obi (pictured above) said he smuggled the drug to send his children who had dropped out back to school.

Read the suspects confession below:

Chiwuenyem Obi said: “I struggle to feed my family by selling foodstuffs. At present, my capital is so small that the business is almost moribund. A friend introduced me to drug trafficking. He promised to pay me 15,000 South African rand. My children are out of school because of my inability to pay their tuition. This is my first time of dealing in drugs and I regret everything. I pray to be out of this problem.”

Ifeoma Ezeano, an African store owner in South Africa said:

 “I have seven children and I take care of them from the sales of foodstuffs. I came to Nigeria to buy foodstuffs like melon, vegetables and other local spices. There is a man in South Africa that I went to request financial assistance to enable me expand my business. He called me that somebody would give me some food items for him. When I got to the airport, NDLEA officers detected methamphetamine in the package given to me by the man.”

Michael Okafor, 44-year-old Asaba-based music producer said:

“I am a music producer. I travelled to Brazil to promote my music. I had a successful deal but on my way back, I accepted a bag from a friend I met in Sao Paulo to take to Nigeria. When I got here, 29 out of the 34 sealants were found to contain cocaine. This is a major setback for my career.”

The last suspect, Gilbert Kelvin said he was shocked that the drug he hid in a solar lamp was discovered by NDLEA.

The 4 drug trafficking suspects are currently in NDLEA detention.

These drug dealers are going out of control.

    When will this show of shame stop? When will death penalty for drug trafficking, armed robbery, and kidnapping be restored? When?.

    Chukwuenyem Obi,Ifeoma Ezeano,Michael Okafor & Gilbert Kevin – whatesle can I say other than to re-ehco what the author has already said -that these “drug dealers are getting out of control”.
    The desperate quest/love for money at whatever cost (do or die) is the root of all these evil acts.
    At D end of D day its all vanity upon vanity!
    Is it only you people that are in this country suffering ?

    What do people think that the way it happened to that one can also happen to me. It is not too long when we read the same story of that Nigerian facing execution in Malaysia and today other culprits why.

    Alabi, what did Uzoma say wrong for you to rain curses at him? Was he wrong to ask for the restoration of death penalty for drug trafficking, armed robbery and kidnapping? Why did you call him an idiot? From your reaction you must be one of those tarnishing the image of Nigeria only you have not been caught. Please don’t generalize. There are criminals in every tribe.

    These idiots are daft and delusional in minds. They could at least perfect good lies rather than given flimsy excuses. “You first learn how to talk-well before picking up fight.” says an adage.
