A 52 year old Nigerian on Saturday set a new record at the Dulles International Airport in America. The woman, Bola Adebisi, is said to have passed 180 thumb sized pellets of heroin, the highest amount ever ingested by a suspect. The drugs were estimated to be worth around $150,000.
Customs officers became suspicious of her when she claimed she was visiting her brother but was unable to describe him. They then performed a routine pat down during which her stomach was found to be abnormally turgid. They then proceeded to perform an x-ray on her which revealed the drugs.
The drugs were weighed to be over five pounds, exceeding the record set last year by another Nigerian at the airport, when he was discovered with drugs weighing over four pounds.
You’ve got to admire these couriers.
