Onuorah Caritas Onyinye, a 29-year-old socialite, was detained by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on suspicion of drug trafficking.
Onyinye, a.k.a. Smart Beyonce, was detained at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport in Enugu after arriving on an Ethiopian Airlines flight from Addis Abeba. She was well-known for going braless.
According to reliable information obtained by SaharaReporters, the suspect engaged in drug trafficking alongside Abba Kyari, the suspended deputy commissioner of police who is currently on trial for allegedly supplying drugs.
According to a source, Onyinye used to pay Abba Kyari $35,000 per month to smuggle drugs into Nigeria via Enugu state, according to SaharaReporters on Tuesday.
According to the informant, “She used to bribe Abba Kyari $35k every month to import drugs into Nigeria through Enugu state.”
According to information obtained, the NDLEA agents who had been pursuing the suspect meticulously checked her luggage once she arrived, which resulted in the finding of 2.192 kilograms of cocaine hidden in two fancy women’s purses with phony linings.
Additionally, SaharaReporters discovered that she became involved in drug trafficking as a result of her acquaintance taking her abroad and teaching her how to generate money illegally.
She had not yet identified her sponsors, according to an NDLEA agent who confirmed the arrest to SaharaReporters under the condition of anonymity.
SaharaReporters’ attempts to contact the NDLEA’s head of media and publicity, Femi Babafemi, for a formal response were fruitless since Babafemi’s phone was ringing nonstop.
According to SaharaReporters, the Intelligence Response Team (IRT) Commander and Deputy Commissioner of Police, Kyari, was detained in February as a result of his connections to a drug gang. He has since been placed on suspension, however he has not yet been fired from the Force.
After being charged, he was remanded in the Kuje Correctional Center in Abuja after being presented before an Abuja High Court.
Kyari was first listed as wanted by the NDLEA for selling cocaine that had been confiscated from drug lords at the Enugu airport in January of this year by IRT agents.
Given that he was suspended last year due to his alleged involvement in fraudulent activities with Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi, who has previously pleaded guilty to money laundering in the US, his participation in the sale had aroused concerns in many places.
