The carrier also provided information on the second suspect, Ifeoma Queen Anozie (33), a Nigerian lady who had been living in India for the previous four years.
Two Nigerian ladies were detained by the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) sleuths on Sunday, October 17, in connection with a drug bust in Kochi, Kerala, India.
A DRI officer assessed the worth of the confiscated cocaine at approximately Rs 5.5 crore on the international market..
It was Kane Simpou Julie (21), a Qatar Airways traveler from Lagos, who landed at the Cochin International Airport Limited (Cial) on Saturday, October 16.
Her trolley bag had a fake bottom, and that’s where she’d hidden the drugs. A team of investigators went after her based on particular information, and she had a seizure.
He was located in Mumbai and worked with the carrier to arrange contraband supplies and transit.
The DRI sleuths allegedly kept the seizure information under wraps to give the impression that the shipment had arrived safely at the airport. After taking the train from Mumbai, she arrived in Kochi and got off at the South Station.
Later, detectives used text messages to get in touch with the lady and forced her to meet them at a hotel under the guise of meeting the carrier. When she showed up for the meet-up, DRI agents detained her.
These two Nigerian ladies were taken into prison for 14 days before they could be brought before the court.
