A Nigerian man has taken to social media to share how he narrowly escaped being jailed, after he discovered weed in yams he was asked to deliver abroad.

According to the unidentified man, his friend, Nwafor Onye-Igbo, had given him tuber of yams to help deliver to some other friends abroad.

The man who claims to be an ex-service man, revealed that he decided to take his time to properly check the items he was supposed to help his friend deliver abroad, when he found a weed, creatively hidden in the tuber of yam.

Weed popularly known as marijuana is an illegal substance that the immigration authorities frown at. If he had not found the packaged weed, he would have been convicted for drug peddling and probably end up in jail.
