A 43-year-old man was caught and made to excrete 66 wraps of illegal drugs at the international airport in Lagos, on his way back from Kenya recently.
According to reports, a 43-year-old man identified as Anukaenyi Bob-Manuel Ogochukwu, was arrested at the Lagos airport for carrying hard drugs on his person.
Anukaenyi who claims to be a computer instructor from Anambra state, was on his way back from Kenya when he was caught and made to excrete the 66 wraps of heroin he had on him.
According to the suspect, he became involved in drug trafficking because he needed funds to take care of his son who has a heart condition and is being treated at a hospital in Nairobi.

Confessing to his crime, Anukaenyi who is married to a Kenyan woman, said:
“I teach in a computer school at Onitsha, Anambra State. This is my very first time of having anything to do with drugs. I smuggled drugs to save my sick child. The doctor said that my child has a hole in the heart. I met many people for help but nobody was willing to help me except a drug baron.
My son is currently struggling for survival at the hospital in Nairobi. The baron who is from Tanzania promised to pay me $2,000 for my child’s medical bill. I am very worried about the condition of my son”.
Speaking on the matter, the Chairman/Chief Executive of the NDLEA Muhammad Mustapha Abdallah, said:
“No explanation is tenable for committing crime. Drug trafficking is a criminal offence and the suspect will be charged accordingly. The suspect’s action only complicated his condition because he is here facing a criminal charge while the responsibility of taking care of his sick son now rest solely on the wife.”
