A 48 year old Nigerian man, Mathew Atueyi, who had been arrested on August 2nd at Edinburgh Airport, UK with 80 packs of cocaine valued at £387,000 was arraigned today October 27th before a top court in Glasgow over drug trafficking charges.
“He was subsequently transferred to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, where he excreted 80 packages weighing around 1,192 grams in total” Nicholson said
When interrogated, Atueyi said he was an automobile dealer located in Onitsha and was also owning a boutique. He confessed that the £2000 found on him at the airport was the upfront payment he got from those that he was transporting the drugs for. He is due for sentencing next month.
