Nigeria removed from major drug trafficking list by the U.S.
The sad story of how Prince Nnaedozie Umegbolu, a 12-year old Nigerian-American kid was made to swallow 87 condoms filled with heroin from Lagos to New York. His Georgia-based African-American mother Alissa Walden says her son was made to work as a mule for Nigerian drug dealers because he was desperate to return to the United States. The boy’s father, Chukwunweike Umegbolu, 40, of Atlanta, has served seven years of a 10-year sentence for his role in a heroin ring that trafficked more than $33 million into Atlanta.
