NDLEA Airport Commander, Hamza Umar said that four parcels containing substances that tested positive for methamphetamine were found in possession of Arinze. ?The drug which was detected inside Arinze?s luggage was carefully hidden. Officers had to cut open the sides of the bag to recover the parcels of drugs. He claimed to have an interview in London? hamza stated.

During interrogation, the suspect confessed to the crime stating that he was given the bag by a friend who bought his return ticket. ?I came to Nigeria in June as an Alumni Ambassador of my University. Work was at advanced stage for an exhibition in Onitsha with parents and prospective candidates who are interested in furthering their education in the United Kingdom. In the process, I got an interview request in London which I had wanted to quickly attend and continue with my assignment in Nigeria. My friend who assisted me in buying my ticket gave me the bag to use for my trip. It was inside the bag that the parcels of drug were found. I am very sorry for what has happened. I want my friends, relatives and business partners to please understand my situation? Arinze stated.

Chairman/Chief Executive, Ahmadu Giade commended the officers for the arrest. ?The Agency will continue to counter the modus operandi of drug trafficking cartels. The suspect had perfected his plan but for the professionalism and expertise of the arresting officers, the drugs were detected. It is sad and disappointing that the suspect could yield to the demand to smuggle drug considering his academic background and profession as a Career Counselor? Giade stated.

The suspect who hails from Anambra State will be charged to court soon.
