UK arrests Two Arik crew members for drug trafficking


Two staff of Nigeria’s largest airline, Arik Air have been arrested at the Heathrow Airport in London for suspected drug trafficking on Tuesday.

A statement by the Head of Press and Public Affairs Section, British High Commission, Rob Fitzpatrick, on Tuesday confirmed the arrest of the crew members.

He said, “The two, Nigerian women aged 37 and 32, who worked for the airline Arik Air, had arrived on a flight from Lagos, Nigeria on the evening of Monday, May 20.

“They were arrested after a package of drugs was discovered by Border Force officers on a bus which had been used to transport air crew.

“It is estimated that the cocaine, if cut and sold on the UK streets, could have had a potential street value of around £600,000.

“The pair remain in Border Force custody where they will be questioned further.”
