After the arrest, David told NDLEA officials at the his story, he said, "I gave a business partner the sum of $30,000 to supply me goods and he disappeared. This brought my business to its knees and I have been struggling to take care of my wife and child since a year ago. I met many people for financial assistance but nobody was willing to help until I was wrongly advised. A friend told me to smuggle cannabis to China.

"I bought the cannabis for N200, 000. My friend told me that I would make a profit of $10,000 selling the cannabis in China. I was only interested in getting money for my motorcycle parts business" NigerianTribune
