Graduate, four others nabbed with cocaine in Lagos airport

Four suspects including a 28-year-old university graduate of Economics, Nonso Akubueze, has been arrested by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency for alleged drug trafficking.

The four men were nabbed at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, with 11.5 kilogrammes of cocaine substances valued at N57m which they had smuggled in from Brazil.

Akubueze, who was found with 1.1kg of cocaine hidden in his luggage, said he had left Nigeria for Brazil with the hope of getting a good job but his expectation was dashed on getting there.

He said, “I am a 2009 graduate of Economics but I have no job. I left Nigeria in search of job opportunities. My condition of living in Brazil was worse than when I was in Nigeria. It was my friend that gave me the bag containing the drug.”
