Stewardess charged after £600k cocaine seizure

AIRLINE: Arik Air

AN AIR stewardess has been charged following the seizure of around six kilos of cocaine worth an estimated £600,000 at Heathrow Airport.

Border Force officers discovered the drugs on a bus which had been used to transport the Arik Air crew, who had arrived in London from a flight from Lagos in Nigeria on the evening of May 20.

The street value of the cocaine is believed to be roughly £600,000 if it was sold on the streets in the UK.

Temitayo Daramola, 37, was later charged with attempting to import a class A drug.

Daramola, who worked for airline Arik Air, appeared before Uxbridge Magistrates on May 22 where she was remanded in custody until her next court appearance on 4 June.

A second crew member arrested at the same time as Daramola has now been released.
