Woman Arrested, at Lagos airport, For Concealing Cocaine Inside Her Vagina

published on Tuesday, 8 April 2014

I heard this story this evening and was shocked at what desperation could do to human beings.
Well, a 36-year old food vendor, Chinelo Okorom Lynnette is said to have excreted 685 grammes of cocaine. The cocaine was concealed in her vagina at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport after she was arrested by members of NDLEA.
Chinelo was suspected and questioned during the inward screening of passengers on an Ethiopian airline flight from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to Nigeria.
 She said hardship pushed her into this when she could no longer take care of her four children after her husband abandoned her. She was also forcefully ejected from the house they lived. She will soon be arraigned in court. 

In her words; "I had nowhere to turn to for solace. I was crying like a baby when a man came to console me. I have never met him in my life. He asked me to wipe my tears and promised to introduce me to importation business. I felt he was God sent until he sponsored my trip to Addis Ababa. When I got to Ethiopia, he told me to take cocaine to Nigeria. Initially I disagreed but he threatened to recover his investment at all cost”.
