Drug Trafficker Dies at Abuja Airport After Cocaine Capsules Burst in His Stomach

A suspected drug trafficker has died at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja after the cocaine capsules he swallowed burst in his stomach. The deceased has been identified as Obiefuna Ndulue from Anambra State.

He slumped at the departure hall of the airport and was rushed to the hospital where 55 wraps of cocaine weighing 1.2 kilogrammes were found in his stomach. 

Ndulue died whilst receiving treatment. 

I still don't understand why people still ingest drugs though knowing the implications of it. Here's another life gone with the wind just like that and I bet you someone else will either be caught in the same act again pretty soon. Sad!
