Roasted Chicken Stuffed With Cocaine
The roasted chickens had an unusual stuffing – $150,000 worth of cocaine, according to Nigerian police. A Nigerian mechanic who struggled to make a living in Brazil for more than six years had hoped the drugs would land him in luxury when he returned to his native land, Nigerian authorities said on Monday.
“This was like a retirement plan for him,” said Mitchell Ofoyeju, spokesman for the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency.
The man was arrested over the weekend at the airport in Lagos after he came in from Sao Paulo with 2.6kg (5.7lb) of cocaine, Ofoyeju said. Photos from the agency showed egg-shaped packages wrapped in gold aluminium foil and tucked into the browned chickens.
The suspect, Vincent Chegini Chinweuwa remained in custody on Monday.
Nigeria is a major transit point for drugs coming from Latin America en route to Europe or the United States but recent security improvements are cutting into that dubious distinction.
