After excreting 80 pellets of cocaine on being caught at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja while heading to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia for Umrah (Lesser Hajj), a businesswoman, Mrs. Adisa Afusat Olayinka, says childlessness after 28 years of marriage propelled her to commit the crime.

The woman said she needed to raise N7million for In Vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment due to pressure from people because she’s been married for 28 years without a child due to fertility challenges.

Unfortunately, she was arrested by operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, NAIA, Abuja for ingesting 80 pellets of cocaine.
