Port Harcourt – A NINETEEN Years old,Â Â Â Mr Egade Lucky has excreted 71 wraps of cocaine weighing 962 grammes at the Port Harcourt International airport, Port Harcourt.Â He was due to board an Air France flight to Paris before he was apprehended at the airport during clearance by men of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA)
The suspect who was paraded before news men yesterday by NDLEA said he did not know the exact quantity of cocaine he swallowed. He said he resides in Italy and was on his way back to Italy when he was apprehended.
He said he was forced to swallow the substance after his passport was seized and other travelling documents were seized
â€˜â€™I was made to agree to carry the substance since I had no options to get back to Europe, So I swallowed the substance and was warned not to eat anything.
â€˜â€™ I was interrogated by the NDLEA officials and later detained and was given some juice and later I started excreting the substanceâ€™â€™, he said.
