A 36-year-old Nigerian man, Chijioke Chukwuemeka Raphael, has been arrested for drug trafficking.
Raphael, a factory worker in Dubai, was arrested at the Muritala Muhammed International Airport, MMIA, Lagos state on Saturday by officers of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA.

He was apprehended with 1.8kg of cocaine in his boxer shorts on his way from Dubai.


Confirming the arrest to newsmen, the NDLEA Commander at the airport, Ahmed Garba, said ?Chijioke Chukwuemeka Raphael, a Dubai based factory worker was arrested with 1.8kgs of cocaine packed inside socks and concealed in his boxer shorts during the inward screening of passengers on an Emirate flight from Dubai.

?Raphael said that he was offered four hundred and fifty thousand (N450,000) naira to smuggle the drug to Nigeria,? the Commander added.

Confessing before newsmen, the suspect said, ?I am a factory worker in Dubai for the past six years. I am married with three children but I cannot take good care of my family. I work from hand to mouth and I am tired of working without seeing the benefits of my labour.

?I met a man seven months ago in Nigeria who introduced me into drug trafficking. He promised me a better job in Nigeria and offered me N450,000 naira. I accepted the offer because I wanted to come back home and start a better job,? the suspect stated.
