Counsellor With Master's Degree Caught With Drugs At Murtala Muhammed International Airport In Lagos

Operatives of National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos have arrested a 30-year-old career counselor and alumnus of the Bolton University, United Kingdom, Arinze Ifeanyi John.

During interrogation, Arinze confessed to the crime but kind of blamed poverty. He said:

“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 with a return 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 holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Madona University Anambra State. He also has a master’s degree in International Business at Bolton University. He has lived in Bolton for the past three years.

According to NDLEA spokesman, Mitchell Ofoyeju, he was caught with 2.120kg of methamphetamine at the outward screening of passengers on a Virgin Atlantic flight to London.

Mitchel further said 4 parcels containing substances that tested positive 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 drugs. He claimed to have an interview in London.”
