In another similar report, Nigeria's anti-narcotic agency, NDLEA, has arrested a trafficker, Chukwuemeka Clement.

Clement reportedly ventured into the illegal act to raise money to marry a new wife and start life afresh after spending 30 years in three foreign countries.

Acquisition, use, or possession of illegal drugs are criminalised in Nigeria; thus, section 19 of the NDLEA Act prescribes punishment ranging from 15 to 25 years imprisonment.
