Man's alleged plan to stuff chickens with $150K of cocaine doesn't fly9/3/2012
Pro tip for travelers: Always declare any and all food items when going through customs at the airport, ESPECIALLY if it’s an assortment of cocaine-stuffed roasted chickens. A Nigerian man was arrested at the airport in Lagos, Nigeria, for allegedly trying to smuggle $150,000 worth of cocaine into his home country after cramming the carefully wrapped drugs into a bunch of browned birds. Vincent Chegini Chinweuwa, who had been struggling as a mechanic in Brazil for six years, had hoped to live the good life in his home country with the help of his non-traditional "investment." "This was like a retirement plan for him," said a spokesman for the Nigerian national drug-enforcement agency. [Source]
