Two 33-year old drug traffickers, Ogbobe Chidiebere and Okonkwo Nonye were on Friday reported to have almost lost their lives after they developed complications from wraps of cocaine they ingested.
The duo reportedly fell critically ill and almost died upon their arrival at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja from Sao Paulo, Brazil enroute Dubai.

Spokesperson for the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, Mr. Mitchell Ofoyeju told newsmen that but for the quick response of medical experts, the duo, who are both from Enugu State, would have died.

Ofoyeju said, “They nearly died when they fell critically ill upon their arrival at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

“Luckily for the suspects, when they were rushed to the hospital, 137 wraps of cocaine were successfully evacuated from their stomachs.”

The spokesperson recalled that similar incidents, which highlights the extreme risk drug mules or traffickers undertake in transporting narcotics in their bodies, have led to the death of traffickers in the past.

Confirming the incident, the Chairman of the NDLEA, Col. Muhammad Mustapha Abdallah (retd.) said the suspects will soon be in a stable health condition as they were responding to treatment, although, it was unclear if any of the wraps burst inside the two suspects.

Abdallah said, “Drug ingestion is a very risky act that takes drug traffickers to early graves. The agency will continue to protect lives and enhance public security by ensuring that narcotic drugs are only made available for medical and scientific purposes.”

He however warned that Nigerians should avoid dangerous and criminal acts that are inimical to their well being, public health and safety, adding that the suspects would be charged to court soon.

COVID-19: Kwara Govt. Approves N25,000 Daily Allowance For Doctors

The Kwara State Government has approved the payment of a daily N25,000 allowance for doctors in its employ, saying that the stipend is in appreciation for the sacrifices and efforts of frontline health workers in the state’s fight against the deadly coronavirus pandemic.

It said that the allowance payment would cut across all healthcare workers who were involved in the state’s Covid-19 response and that the amount payable to each cader would be determined according to the available categories.

The State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, confirmed the approval through a post on his social media page on Tuesday and expressed appreciation for the efforts of healthcare workers in the frontline of the state’s battle against coronavirus.

Abdulrazaq stated that no allowance could pay for the sacrifices being made by medical doctors and other healthcare workers in the state, but added that the daily disbursements would, however, acknowledge the esteem with which the government viewed its frontline respondents.

“We have approved N25,000 as daily allowance for medical doctors and varying daily allowance for other categories of health workers involved in our fight against COVID-19. This is to show appreciation to health workers as it’s impossible to pay them for their priceless sacrifices”, he said.

When the times are uncertain and filled with fears and worry, it is normal to want to share as much information with loved ones as you receive.

It is important, however, to be wary of sharing information that can be misleading or otherwise increase the fear and panic already being experienced by so many people connected to you.

Before you share information, ask yourself the following questions:

1) Where did this message originate from?

2) Does the information tally with information from the World Health Organisation or the NCDC?

3) How will this information affect the person I send this to psychologically?

Some messages can do more harm than good. Please, share only verified information from the NCDC and WHO, to stop the spread of fear, panic, and misinformation.
