A 48 year-old woman caused a mild drama at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja after she allegedly vomitted 15 wraps of white, powdery substances that tested positive for cocaine.

Saidat Hassan, a mother of three,‎ was arrested at the central screening section of the departure hall during the screening of passengers on an Egypt Airline flight to Jedda, Saudi Arabia, en-route Cairo.

She was immediately apprehended by officers of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) who discovered that she had ingested 80 wraps of cocaine weighing 904 grammes, the agency said in a statement on Friday.

Hamisu Lawan, the NDLEA Abuja airport commander said efforts were made to protect her from any harm resulting from drug ingestion.

“As soon as we discovered that the suspected wraps she vomited tested positive for cocaine, we took measures to ensure her safety by preventing any harm that may result from drug ingestion,” said Mr. Lawan.

“While under observation, she excreted sixty-five similar wraps. In all, she ingested 80 wraps of cocaine weighing 904 grammes; her case is under investigation.”

Mohammad Abdallah, the‎ NDLEA Chairman, who expressed satisfaction with her arrest said her action negates every principle of good parenting.

“This is gross ineptitude on the part of a mother saddled with the responsibility of nurturing her children into future leaders,” said Mr. Abdallah, a retired colonel.

“I am glad that she did not die from drug ingestion and she is alive to face trial. Besides escaping the risk of swallowing cocaine, this arrest also saved her because drug trafficking in Saudi Arabia is punishable by death.

“She will soon be charged to court because the law must run its full course. I expect the general public to learn lessons from this case that drug trafficking leads to pain, ignominy and untimely death.”

The NDLEA boss said his approach to drug control is both pragmatic and scientific.

“Every action taken must be based on best global principles while lessons learnt will influence our implementation strategies in our day to day operations,” he said.

“The Agency will continue to sensitize members of the public by presenting facts and figures of drug trafficking as well as the larger picture of its ruin and devastation.”

Mrs. Hassan, a native of Idiroko, Ogun State who resides in Lagos Island claimed to be a business woman dealing in clothing materials.

“I am a business woman and I sell women clothes at Balogun market,” she said in her statement to the NDLEA.

“I used to buy my goods from Ghana. I was introduced into the drug business by a friend and business partner. The drug was brought from Abidjan, Ivory Coast and we were to share the proceeds equally.

“Until my arrest, I never knew that the cocaine I ingested would have led to my death in Saudi Arabia. I thank God for keeping me alive.”

A female drug trafficker, Ifeoma Daniel Joy, a native of Ukwa in Ukwa Local Government Area of Abia State, who vomited wraps of cocaine at the departure hall of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport Ikeja, Lagos later died as a result of cocaine bust in 2007.

Ms. Joy, 29, was said to have died after one of the wraps of drugs she ingested burst while preparing to board an Ethiopian airline heading for Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

She had ingested 79 wraps of substances that tested positive for cocaine with a weight of 1.32 kilogrammes.

        See how she cunningly deflected the topic using Taqiyya to deceive people. In all her dishonest ranting she made no mention of her sister Hajiya Saidat Hassan presenting her as an innocent woman who was deceived by other tribes. This woman is dangerous and should be banned from children.

        • Otile

          Shame on you, whore. You have prostituted in many lands to learn what is going on in those places. The other day you bragged that when you were leaving South Africa for Cisalpine Gull you were given a bear hug by the apartheid police. Now you are explaining your experiences in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Anglo Egyptian Sudan. Why are you bragging about your dirty experiences? Haba Smelly Cunt.

    • Otile

      Smelly cunt, corruption is written all over you. You are even corrupt to the cunt. You know very well that your co-harlot Hajiya Saidat Hassan is a concubine of your sweet heart. See how you are defending her by attacking your enemy ethnic group but playing dead to her crimes.

      Whatever you do don’t hide under the name of our Blessed Mother to commit crimes. A whore like you should change your moniker to an appropriate Yoruba name. You are a disgrace to mankind.

  • FirecloudOFGOD

    Whoa, was she trying to performing some magic tricks? She should have waited a few hours and perform the trick at the other end of her journey. Now she exchanges riches for penury and JAIL TIME!

  • TrueNja

    How I wish she was caught in Saudi Arabia. Such Nigerians are the ones PMB was referring to during his town hall meeting in London.

  • sammyctu ode

    Thank God she was caught in Nigeria and not in Saudi Arabia where they would have chopped her head off. If there is death penalty in Nigeria maybe these fools will not be trafficking these dangerous drugs. NDLEA continue to catch these small frys without proper investigations to apprehend the barons cos they too are corrupt.

  • Dr.Dan

    I never knew there was so much inter ethnic animosity in Nigeria until I started reading peoples comments. Every topic is twisted to spew hate. I have come to understand that Nigeria is just a geographical location and not a nation.

    • Otile

      You are right, buddy. Chief Awolowo said it that Nigeria is a mere geographical expression. Nigeria is a collection of diverse African countries that have little or nothing in common except crude oil from the Niger Delta. Wise Europeans had to separate their people into disparate manageable countries. Here in Nigeria oppressors unleash themselves on others with force of arms just to steal oil. Until Nigeria breaks up naturally agitation for freedom, and justice will continue.
