Akinyemi Monsurat Olajumoke, who hails from Ogun State, was nabbed with four parcels of heroin, at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos, during inward screening of passengers on an Ethiopia Airlines flight from Entebbe, Uganda.
Narrating how she got involved in the act of drug pushing, 51-year-old Olajumoke said:
"I am a trader. I used to buy female clothes from India for sale. However, due to family problems and the economic situation, my capital is getting smaller and I wanted to expand my business. I was introduced into drug trafficking by a friend who invited me to Uganda.
"I invested my $3,000 into the deal in expectation of over 100%. I am sad that things did not go as planned. When the drug was discovered at the airport, I felt as if it was all over for me."
