Okafor played for UNTH Enugu FC before leaving Nigeria for Sri Lanka and eventually traveling to Brazil, where he was unable to continue his career owing to documentation concerns, according to NDLEA spokesman Femi Babafemi.

Okafor revealed during the initial interview that he formerly played football for the UNTH Enugu FC of the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital for four seasons before departing for Sri Lanka in 2014. He added that he had played for two seasons in Sri Lanka before moving to Brazil, but that lack of official documents prevented him from furthering his football career there.

Babafemi also revealed that 3.20kg of black cocaine was hidden by Ibeh Chinedu, a returnee from Brazil who was also arrested.

“Ibeh Chinedu Damian, a second returning Brazilian, was arrested the same day he arrived at the Lagos airport from Sao Paulo, Brazil, on an Ethiopian Airlines flight. Ibeh, who is from Ahiazu in Imo State’s Mbaise Local Government Area, was discovered to have 3.20 kg of black cocaine—more commonly known as “Lucci”—hidden in the false bottoms of his two bags.
