Drug smuggler at Glasgow Airport swallowed 107 packets of cocaine


A drug smuggler's trembling hands gave him away to customs officials at Glasgow airport, a court heard yesterday. The High Court in Glasgow was told that Victor Adedun arrived at the city's airport having swallowing more than 100 packages of cocaine, containing drugs worth £64,000.

Custom officials who examined his baggage noticed his hands were trembling and detained him. They then discovered the conference he claimed he was in the country to attend did not exist.

The court heard Adedun, 45, told the officers: 'If you were to X-ray me you would find packages inside me.' He was taken to the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley where an X-ray revealed the packages in his lower colon and stomach. During the course of the next 2 days the 107 packages, worth £64,200, were retrieved by customs officials...

Adedun, who had travelled to Glasgow from Nigeria via Amsterdam, admitted smuggling 1¼ kilos of cocaine at Glasgow Airport on December 16, last year. Sentencing was deferred until next month for background reports.
