Nigerians Caught With Cocaine At Cambodia Airport (Photos)

Two Nigerians were arrested at Phnom Penh International Airport for smuggling 1.27 kilograms of cocaine inside their bodies, according to the National Authority for Combating Drugs.

Okafor Ifeanyi Anthony and Adibe Paschal flew from Nigeria to Vietnam, via Qatar, and then to Cambodia, using Qatar Airways flight Q970 – the same flight taken by a Thai woman who was arrested with cocaine on April 1 this year.

“When the [officer] detained them at the airport, he found some substances which they carried in their hands,” said Mr. In Song, an official at the Anti-Drug department at the Ministry of Interior. “They carried this substance to deceive us.” | More photos below...

Police confiscated several bags of the mysterious brown powdered substance but it did not test positive for drugs. “The drugs that they hid were in their stomach,” said Mr. Song.

Police extracted the drugs by ordering the Nigerians to eat laxatives. They eventually ate and excreted the drugs on Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Okafor and Adibe will be spending long years in prison, that's if they are not killed. Others should learn
