NDLEA nab smugglers who hid N119m worth of drugs in perfume bottles

Officials of the Nigerian Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, have arrested two suspected drug smugglers, Marvin Daniel and Victor Akubuo (pictured above) for smuggling N119m worth of illegal substances that tested positive for cocaine. The drugs were concealed inside perfume bottles and capacitors. 

The suspects flew from Dubai into Lagos with the illegal substances and were arrested after a screening of their luggage at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos. While one of the suspects, Daniel hid 7.58 kg of the drugs in capacitors, Akubuo concealed his, weighing 5.75kg, inside perfume bottles.

 
When interrogated, Daniel who is 29 years old from Abia state, said he was in search for a business breakthrough when he was introduced to the drug peddling business...
"I was searching for a business breakthrough when my friend told me that I could earn N500,000 by just going to Brazil. He told me they would buy my return ticket and all I needed to do was to bring in the cocaine. He assured me that the drugs would not be detected because of the way it was packed. Unfortunately, the drug was detected by NDLEA officers during a search at the Abuja Airport,” Daniel said.
His partner, 26 year old trader and father of 2, Akubuo who hails from Anambra State, said he ventured into the illicit business so as to get money to resuscitate his ailing business
"I needed some money to invest in my ailing business. That was how my friend convinced me to smuggle drugs for the sum of N500,000. The drug was hidden inside new perfume containers and I never knew it will be uncovered by the officers.”he said

As long as there are sniffer dogs @ the airport don't try to smuggle drugs, you ll be detected.
Sniffer drugs can sniff out various smells individually eg if u give them jollof rice they will smell the various components (oil, curry, onions, tomatoes) differently!
Its their God given ability, that's how they ll be able to smell cocaine in a perfume bottle.
Sorry guys you ll have to face the music.
As for those that swallow, a simple abdominal scan/x-ray will fish you out. That is aside the risk of it bursting in your stomach and actually killing you!

So source for a more legit way of making money!

Peace

Ibo people. If their girls are not doing prostitution by sleeping with all their bosses at work. While the local ones do national prostitution on all the streets of Nigeria. The boys are carrying drugs all over the world and thousands are awaiting death. Or they are kidnapping or robbing. You people need community meeting.

They were really out to conquer poverty but they went the wrong way. They quest to get rich quick has landed many into trouble. Fellow Nigerians the 'easiest' means to conquer poverty is to be industrious, genuinely industrious!
