Photo: Mother of three caught with Cannbis at Lagos Airport

A 37-year-old mother of three, Ezeh Ifeoma Maureen (pictured above), has been arrested with substances suspected to be cannabis by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA). 

According to The Nation, Maureen was caught at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA) in  Ikeja, Lagos, during outward screening of China-bound Ethiopian Airlines’ passengers for allegedly attempting to smuggle 6.200 kilogrammes of dried weeds that tested positive for cannabis.

The agency’s Airport Commander, Mr. Hamza Umar, said the suspect told the officers that her bags contained vegetables and foodstuff. Continue...


“She declared the content of her bags as vegetables and foodstuff, but during a search, the vegetables turned out to be cannabis weighing 6.200 kilogrammes. The drug was packed in two parcels.”
The suspect, who hails from Anambra State, said: 
“I am a business woman; I sell women’s clothes at the Onitsha main market. I usually export foodstuff to China and import female dresses to Nigeria. One of my customers in China called to tell me that his brother would give me two parcels of vegetables to bring to him. I collected the parcels at the airport from the boy. Unfortunately, when they tested them, I was told that they contained cannabis.”
Chairman/Chief Executive of NDLEA, Ahmadu Giade, advised the public to learn from the cases of those arrested for drug trafficking.
“This mother of three children would have been killed in China for drug trafficking if she was not apprehended here. It is important for the public to learn from her experience and shun drug trafficking,” he said.
Giade warned passengers not to collect items from people, who will not be there during a search.
The suspect, Giade said, would be charged to court for unlawful possession of, and attempt to export cannabis.

Super story. Weneva someone is caught in a crime they will frame up a story to cover up. Oya call the person in China to come and take responsibility of your crime. Sorry Ma, take heart.

Madam lire did u say they were vegetables ?STFU

olumide abiodun said...

Hmm! If her story is true, it is so sad she has to go through this kind of humiliation. Her face shown to the world as a drug smuggler. And people should learn from this. If her story is false, and she is indeed in on this, then I am thinking...like how much can she actually make from this?


How much do people actually make from smuggling weed? Weed is not that expensive, I mean compared to cocaine. I can't see her making more than $2,000 from those two parcels...I just don't think it is worth the risk.


Are YOU A One Minute Man?

ella john said...

Hmmm my fellow woman why.how can a vegatable be wrapped like this.
Face of lib

iamjavademon said...

That is why its good to wtach other programmes on DSTV besides Africa Magic so that you can learn alot. Well, the should take pity on her and give her like 20 strokes of the cane each day for a week and release her.

EbonyAma said...

Sorry ma. Face d law. Bye 4 now.

Bonita Bislam said...

They never learn.Poverty is never an excuse to commit crime,its a motivation though.And that's where power over self comes in.

They set the poor woman up. Tho she's DOPE

Anonymous said...

It is also very possible she was set up. Some people that have never travelled before will jump at the opportunity for a nicely cooked up story by the true suspect. Stuff happens people. There are still very naïve Nigerians out there. Being streetwise doesn't really make you immune.

Most naija women dont no weed leaves, she might be saying the truth.

James said...

I don't know why cannabis has such stigma. Alcohol and smoking are far more harmful yet are more tolerated.
People with cerebral palsy and other conditions use it to reduce their symptoms. It helps to relax people. Nobody has ever died from marijuana use. You can smoke it too much the same way people smoke cigarettes and drink too much alcohol.

Fun Fact: One reason for the criminalisation of Marijuana in America is because "It makes niggers feel as good as the white man and causes white women to want to be with black men". That was the reason Harry Anslinger gave. All his other claims of it being disastrous to your health have been debunked and yet we still wallow in sanctimony.

I know the woman must be an Igbo woman, always do anything to get rich and make unlawful money. Just like their male counterparts, always dubious.

ColdFlame said...

I can testify with all honesty at my disposal that cannabis is truly a vegetable... Cooked alongside pumpkin leaves in soups or with scent leaves in pepper soups there is no beating the "rebound" on your taste buds once you're done downing it. So for heavens sake what is it they say she's done wrong again???
