Drug trafficking: Princess Okoye to appear before a Court in Kenya

A Nigerian Princess Okoye arrested at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi on Sunday for cocaine trafficking is due to appear in court today, Kenya’s Capital News reported.

The woman was picked up as she attempted to board a plane to Italy. The reports did not indicate whether Okoye was travelling from Nigeria.

Kenya’s Daily Nation said that the country’s Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) reported the arrest via Twitter on Monday, saying Princess Okoye was a suspected drug trafficker.

The DCI said Ms Okoye, 25, was found with 77 pellets of suspected narcotics, in packets that had been hidden in two bottles of milk.
