Arik staff caught with N180m worth of cocaine at Heathrow airport

A female Arik staff was arrested yesterday Tuesday May 21st at Heathrow airport London for allegedly carrying cocaine worth about N180 million. Temitayo Olubunmi Daramola was arrested with 6kg of cocaine while another hostess Delita Abibimgbi was arrested for having 60 packets of cigarettes in her possession. The max limit of cigarettes any passenger is allowed to carry is 10 packs.

Security at Heathrow Airport detained Temitayo and Delita after detecting the illicit drugs in their possession. They are being held in custody by the UK authorities in London.

Arik Air has since reacted to the incident. The airline company's spokesman Banji Ola confirmed the detention of the two cabin crew members and said the airline will fully co-operate with all authorities involved in the investigation. Read the airline's statement after the cut...


"Arik Air carries out very stringent checks on all members of staff and its travelling guests ahead of all flights. It will continue to focus its attention on measures to prevent the possibility of any future similar incidents. Arik Air is a responsible Nigerian company always seeking to maintain and uphold the integrity and proud reputation of the nation".
Meanwhile the Chief Executive of the Nigerian Drug Law and Enforcement Agency, Ahmadu Giade, has ordered officials of the agency to commence investigation into the matter.

For the umpteenth time, Nigeria is in the news for the wrong reasons! What a smooth way to convey drugs this is, using air hostesses, end of the line for them though.

Arik staff home and abroad if not burgling customers carry on luggage they're carrying drugs all in this greedy Naija quest for infinite funds to feed materialistic wants like weave on and loubotin(is it spelt so)...in any case the company was founded on the same principles by peter odili through rockson company front so i'm not surprised. The U.K will certainly not be sentimental with justice. Sadly this spells more descrimination for Nigerian travellers as our already crippled image takes another loss.

Wish they were caught in America though where you can get 25 years for a crime like this in comparison to UK's 7yrs which will end up as 3yrs with good behaviour.

Arik no. 1 in every bad deed. Stealing of passenger items plus smuggling. This is the second tym on Arik female smugglers. Quest for LV bags, hermes, christn louboutin shoes ,Brazilian, peruvian hair and gbo gbo bigtz gehs cars to oppress. They should deal with them no be small.

In as much as I do not condone the action of the girls cos resorting to drugs is not the way out,why don't we check the systemic failure in the company called Arik. Arik is a glorified slave camp where "oyinbos" are worshipped, the owner and his son worships the ground that white people tread on,the whites in d company enjoy better benefits than indigenous workers, staffs are owed salaries in arrears of 2 months, no health insurance, no staff benefits, Arik employee flying on d airline pays full fares like other passengers , this is what u should expect when u don't take care of ur staffs,oyinbos collect more than blacks for doing the same or even lesser jobs.....in the words of Richard Branson and I quote "I take care of my staffs so that they can take care of my customers"
