Three Women Arrested For Using Bag Of Rice To Smuggle 818 Rounds Of Ammunition

Three women arrested by the Nigeria Police Force in connection with a failed plot to smuggle 818 rounds of live ammunition concealed in a bag of rice from Kano to Bayelsa.

The suspects are Eleana Yowei, 25, Favour Bello, 21, and Priye Jimi, 30. Lance Corporal Yowei, the husband of Eleana Yowei, is also currently detained by the Nigerian military.

Speaking to newsmen while being paraded alongside other suspects, 25-year-old Eleana Yowei (pictured above) said the bag of rice was brought home by her husband, Lance Corporal Yowei from Zamfara.

Eleana, who lives in Kano, said her husband of 7 years called her on the phone on May 28, to say Favour Bello, 21, who stays with her, will be travelling to Bayelsa and instructed her to give her the bag of rice when she’s travelling. He added that Favour has been instructed to hand the bag of rice over to her mother Priye Jimi, 30, when she gets to Bayelsa.

The next day, her husband called to tell her Favour has been detained at the car park by louts. He sent soldiers from the barracks who went there and were also detained. That evening, officers came to her home and arrested her.

She was taken to SARS office in Bompai, Kano, and detained for one week before she was transferred to Abuja.

In tears, Eleana told newsmen that she didn’t check the content of the bag of rice because of the trust she had for her husband of seven years. She said she is a victim and advised people to always check the content of whatever package they receive
