Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) have intercepted 24 parcels of cocaine concealed in 12 tires of lawn mowers imported into the country through the Port Harcourt International Airport by a Brazilian returnee, Okechukwu Amaechi.


Forty-five years old Amaechi, has just finished serving his jail term for drug trafficking in the South American country.


He was arrested at the Port Harcourt airport on Saturday 7th May upon his arrival from Brazil via Doha onboard Qatar Airline flight QR1433.


The spokesman of the NDLEA, Femi Babafemi in a statement said preliminary investigations revealed Amaechi, who was arrested and convicted in Brazil for drug offences completed serving his jail sentence in March 2022, after which he decided to return to Nigeria with three new lawn mowers where he concealed 24 parcels of cocaine weighing 4.56 kilogrammes.


Babafemi said each parcel concealed in the tires of the three lawn mowers bears some unique inscriptions, which are believed to be means of identification of the owners of the drug., adding that the two parcels in one of the tyres of the first lawn mower bear “O LORD” and “HAVE MERCY”.  The parcels in one of the tires of the second mower bears the inscription “IN GOD” and “WE TRUST”, while the third mower has “IJIOMA” and “186.6” inscribed on the two parcels hidden in one of its tires.


According to him, Amaechi claimed one of his church members gave him the lawn mowers to deliver to his brother in Port Harcourt.
