A Rwandan nurse Beatrice Isaro  was arrested by Uganda Aviation Police at Entebbe Airport on Sunday while trying to sneak out cocaine worth about Shs. 397 million.

According to reports from Ugandan media, Isaro was arrested when Ugandan Police identified the suspect who they say was detected by the new technology equipment  recently installed at the airport.

The drugs, according to the CIID Spokesperson Vincent Ssekate, were concealed in the suspect’s suite case.

“Police recently procured machines with high technology intelligence which can never miss any slight illegal slip-in and that’s why we were able to arrest Isaro who tried to smuggle narcotic drugs out of the country,” Ssekate reported to have said.

“The aviation officers on arrest searched the luggage and found shoes, tea leaves, a towel, cocaine that was parked in papers and wrapped in a cloth for disguise.”

Ssrekate says Isaro was found with a Rwandan passport number EC 298229 and 1.59 kgs of cocaine which she was taking to to Bamako the capital city of Mali.

The suspect was immediately arrested along with one Haruna Koli with whom police says they were traveling.

Isaro told Police that the suitcase was given to her by her friend called Issa that had met her earlier at Pioneer Mall and asked her to deliver it to his brother in Mali

When asked about the reason for travelling to Mali she said a friend called Mitchel requested for her help in buying merchandise and reselling it in Kigali.

Isaro is the second female to be arrested smuggling cocaine through Entebbe Airport in a month.
