It was end of the road for two notorious criminals, 36-year-old Chioma Afam and Peace Chidinma Caleb (22) who wore the Hijab as a cover to smuggle a total of 296,000 tablets of Diazepam and Exol-5 from Onitsha, Anambra state to Gombe state
Multiple media reports, including The Guardian said Chioma, who uses multiple names such as Amina, Uzoamaka and Ifunanya to cover her criminal activities was arrested on Saturday 17th July, 2021, along with her partner in crime, Chidinma, who also wears the hijab as a cover for her nefarious activities during routine checks and profiling of inward vehicles into Makurdi, the Benue state capital.
Their vehicle coming from Onitsha, Anambra State was intercepted along Makurdi – Alliade road while heading to Gombe State via Makurdi.
A search of their vehicle led to the discovery of 43 kilograms of Diazepam and 33kg of Exol-5, both weighing 76 kilograms, with a total of Two Hundred and Ninety Six Thousand (296,000) tablets packed in four large ‘Ghana must go’ bags.
Curiously, the two interstate drug traffickers have rebuffed efforts to take pictures with the exhibits without wearing their hijab.
