Aww! Poor Dorothy Onyekas, a 41 year old mother of 3 was allegedly caught with 1.710 kilogrammes of cocaine, worth N20.6 million (USD $103,500.00) at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos Nigeria.

The interesting thing is that she was caught on an Emirates flight from Dubai, United Arab Emirates (Ha! So the Arabians could not see through her ruse but I trust my Nigerian NDLEA officials to spot her like a huge stain on a wall. Seriously, if I worked for NDLEA, every pregnancy, bandage, prosthetic limb, diarrhea, snack, pillow, handbag, soiled diapers…will be guilty until proven innocent).


NDLEA commander at the Lagos airport, Ahmadu Garba said,

“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. It had a gross weight of 1.720 kilogrammes’’.

What do you think led this woman (someone’s mother, sister, maybe wife….) to do this? Desperation or Greed?
