A Nigerian woman named Princess Okoye has been arrested at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA), Nairobi for cocaine trafficking and is expected to be charged to court today.
The woman was arrested on Sunday as she attempted to board a plane to Italy.
Kenya’s Daily Nation said that the country’s Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) reported the arrest via Twitter on Monday, saying Princess Okoye was a suspected drug trafficker.
The DCI said Okoye, 25, was found with 77 pellets of suspected narcotics, in packets that had been hidden in two bottles of milk.
“Upon being placed under observation, she emitted an additional 15 pellets,” the tweet stated.
