just last week sunday,a desperate Nigerian couple, Jimoh Oladega Bashir (46), his wife, Jimoh Mulikat Adebukola and their six-year-old twins were caught carrying 5.0 kg of white powdery substance that tested positive to cocaine, at Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos, while boarding a flight to the London. The desperate family, eager to make quick money through drug trafficking has landed in the net of the dreaded National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA). while their six-year old innocent twins had been released to their family, the couple after investigation will be taken to court to face the consequences of engaging in drug trafficking.
Fellow hubbers, your views and comments are welcomed regarding this urgly development...also, how can drug trafficking in African can be stopped!!
Sad to say trafficing of drugs will never be stopped anywhere in the world.
I disagree. Drug trafficking can be stopped. But it takes a certain resolve by people doing the search. This doesn't exist in Mexico or Africa, or probably any other third world country. That drugs were found on the Nigerian woman and in the kids' diapers is a good sign. The technology now exists to find anything on anybody. As the cartel war in Mexico heats up, the U.S. will be forced* to get more involved and the cartels will be rerouted to Europe via Africa. Once Africa is saturated with drugs that whole continent will implode. But nobody cares.
*The U.S. doesn't want to shut down drug trafficking to this country. Illegal migrants are too important a commodity. A few hundred dead U.S. citizens by cartels is small change. So the cartels can control the U.S. border towns. In exchange, the corporations will continue to have cheap labor, and Congress will have the Hispanic vote. This is business.

Okay, I understand that airport security had to get a lot more tougher since the horrific aftermath of 9/11, but this is just plain ridiculous. Seriously, how is a guy that wears baggy pants a threat to national security? That doesn't make any sense. Oh well. Anyways, here's...
