London-Based Nigerian Fashion Designer Caught With Drugs

 Greed is really causing problems for a lot of Nigerians. On Monday, operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), arrested another woman at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos, for drug trafficking.
25 year old Bisola Animasaun, a London-based fashion designer, was nabbed with 3 kilogrammes of cocaine concealed in packs of chocolates. She was arrested during screening of passengers on a British Airways flight to London. Thirty sachets of cocaine weighing 3kg was found inside two chocolates containers in her bag.
In a statement made to the NDLEA, Bisola confessed to the crime. “This is a very big mistake on my part. I hope I will be given the opportunity to right my wrongs. They promised me £3,000 to take the packs of chocolates. Apart from the financial inducement, I should have resisted the temptation. It is a mistake that will never happen again,” she said.
Ahmadu Giade, Chairman of the Agency, said “Drug traffickers, male or female, must be stopped from tarnishing the image of our country.” He added that Bisola would be charged to court.
