Officials of the National DrugLaw Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, at the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, have apprehended a 59 -year- old Chukwuani, a fish farmer while allegedly trying to board an Ethiopian airline flight to Johannesburg, South Africa, through Addis Ababa.Twenty-five kilogrammes of substances that tested positive for ephedrine, according to the agency, were found in the suspect’s luggage.

NDLEA Kano Airport commander, Mr Ambrose Umoru, explained that the suspect was intercepted at the departure waiting lounge based on intelligence.

He said : “The suspect was arrested following a tip-off after he had already gone through screening. When the substance was detected, it was tested and found to be positive for ephedrine. Already, an investigation has commenced into the case since the arrest on July 15” Umoru stated.

During investigation, the 59-year-old Enugu-based fishfarmer said he smuggled drugs in order to expand his fish farming business.

According to Chukwuani, “I am a fish farmer at Agbogugu, Agwu Local Government Area of Enugu State. I am married with three children and due to financial problems, my business was almost going into extinction. I decided to smuggle drugs to invest the money in my fish farm. They promised to pay me the sum of $2,000 dollars”.
