Photo: NDLEA Arrests Mother Of Three Who Faked Pregnancy With Wraps Of Cocaine


Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has arrested 46 year old Dorothy Onyekasi pictured above, who faked a pregnancy with 86 pellets of white powdery substances that tested positive to cocaine while trying to board an Emirate flight to Dubai at the Muritala Mohammed International Airport MMIA Lagos.

The mother of three who hails from Enugu and trades in ladies bags and shoes, had cocaine that  weighed 1.720 kilogrammes with an estimated street value of N20.6 million.


When interrogated, Dorothy, she said

“It is all my fault. If only I was contented with the profit from the sales of my goods, I would not have been in this problem. I am separated from my husband who left me with three children. I used to import female bags and shoes from Dubai. My involvement in drug trafficking is a mistake and I take responsibility for my action. I travelled to Dubai to buy my goods. While I was preparing to return, I met a man in Dubai who gave me the drug and promised to give me enough money to expand my business. He also told me that when I get to Nigeria, he will call his partner to collect the drug and give me my money”.


NDLEA commander at the Lagos airport, Garba Ahmadu, said the wraps of cocaine would have been easily mistaken for pregnancy.

“It was discovered that the suspect kept 86 wraps of cocaine inside a waist bag which was tied to her stomach. Unfortunately, the drug was detected by NDLEA officers on her arrival from Dubai. The drug was immediately packed and weighed in her presence.”

She will be charged to court soon.
