Kenyan professional dancer nabbed for importing drugs into the country
A FORTY-TWO-year-old Kenyan female dancer, Samira Johnson, has been nabbed by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, with cocaine weighing 5.345kg.
The spokesman of the drug-bursting agency, Mitchell Ofoyeju, said the dancer had concealed the narcotics in some school bags.
“The suspect was found in possession of four blue parcels of white powdery substance that tested positive for cocaine weighing 5.345kg.”
“Johnson, who was born in Mombasa, travelled with a Kenyan international passport with number A1536020. She departed Bujumbura in Burundi en-route Nairobi to Lagos on a Kenyan Airways flight.”
“During routine screening, she was found with four parcels of cocaine concealed in school bags. She claimed to be a professional dancer in Kenya. She claimed she was given the school bags in Bujumbura by a friend to deliver in Nigeria,” he said.
She will soon be charged to court.
