Okafor Emmanuel Junior, a former footballer managed to get himself into trouble after the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, busted him on the note that he was found with a considerable amount of cocaine.
The ex-football player was alleged to possess 1.40kg of the hard drug which got him in the nets of the agency apprehended exactly at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, cited at the Ikeja part of Lagos State.
Reports revealed that Okafor Emmanuel Junior met his unfortunate encounter minutes after he landed from Sao Paulo, Brazil, through Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on board an Ethiopian flight.
The crack cocaine was reportedly stashed properly in his bags, concealed in a way that the authorities couldn’t have recognised it if not for the expertise deployed in the search process.
On Sunday, in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, NDLEA:s Spokesperson, Femi Babafemi, said during a preliminary interview, the ex-player disclosed that he played with the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, UNTH, Enugu FC, for four seasons before leaving for Sri Lanka in 2014.
He hails from Arochukwu Local Government, Abia State. Junior is a thirty-three-year-old man that officially played football in Brazil for two-fruitful seasons, but couldn’t progress due to him being an illegal immigrant.
Junior would’ve made a whooping sum of N3.1 million if the cocaine got to the intended destination.
