Cocaine-stuffed roasted chicken found at Nigeria airport

Sapa-AP | 03 September, 2012 17:37

Authorities in Nigeria say they arrested a man at an international airport who was bringing in roasted chicken with unusual stuffing: $150,000 worth of cocaine.

National Drug Law Enforcement Agency spokesman Mitchell Ofoyeju said Monday that suspect Vincent Chegini Chinweuwa arrived at Lagos' Murtala Muhammed International Airport this weekend from Sao Paolo in Brazil.

Ofoyeju said Chinweuwa told investigators he had hoped to start a business in Nigeria with the drug money.

Chinweuwa could not immediately be reached for comment as he remained in custody of the anti-drug agency Monday. Ofoyeju said Chinweuwa had yet to hire a lawyer.

Nigeria is a major transit point for drugs coming from Latin America and going to Europe and the US.
