Plane makes emergency landing in Lagos over suspected drug trafficker’s health

An Emirates flight EK 262 from Sao Paulo, Brazil to Dubai, United Arab Emirates made an emergency land­ing in Lagos at the weekend due to the deteriorating health condition of a suspected cocaine trafficker.
Screening by anti-narcotic officials found four pas­sengers positive for drug ingestion, who are currently under interrogation.
One of the suspects in critical health condition was immediately hospitalized even as doctors were making spirited efforts to save his life.

Chairman/Chief Executive of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Col. Muhammad Mu­stapha Abdallah (retd.), who said that the suspect is re­sponding to treatment called for stiffer penalty against drug trafficking.
NDLEA commander at the Murtala Muhammad In­ternational Airport (MMIA) Lagos, Mr. Ahmadu Gar­ba said that the Emirates flight left Sao Paulo, Brazil to Dubai but was forced to come to Lagos due to the health condition of a passenger on board who ingested cocaine.
“A passenger complained of severe abdominal pains and later suffered three recurrent seizures thus neces­sitating an emergency landing in Lagos.
Upon arrival, four passengers tested positive for narcotic ingestion. They are Okeh Desmond, Ezeanya Nnaemeka, Christopher Nonso and Chibusi Promise. All the suspects are under observation,” Garba stated.
