Cocaine Mule Jailed by LoverBwoy(m): 9:16pm On Feb 13, 2007
A man who tried to smuggle two kilos of condom-wrapped cocaine into Scotland hidden inside his body has been jailed for four years.
Kingsley Ifeka, 43, was stopped at Edinburgh Airport last October and while in custody he excreted a handful of packages.

Ifeka, a Nigerian, was then admitted to hospital and during a 10-day period he produced 129 balls of cocaine.

The High Court in Glasgow heard the haul had a street value of £330,000.

It is understood Ifeka inserted the packages into his body before his flight from Guinea in West Africa to Edinburgh, via Paris.

The former club steward, based in Dijon, France, eventually pleaded guilty last month to one charge of being concerned in the fraudulent evasion of the prohibition on importation of controlled drugs.

He was sentenced on Tuesday by Lord Turnbull.

John Whiting, of HM Revenue and Customs, said: "HMRC investigators and detection officers at Scotland's airports and ports are determined to stop Class A drugs reaching our streets.

"Today's case sends another significant warning to anyone tempted to smuggle drugs."
