A DRUGS mule stopped at Bristol Airport with cocaine worth £400,000 in her suitcase linings has been jailed for eight years.

Adetokunbo Ajoke Bakare claimed to have bought the suitcases from a roadside trader in Cameroon and denied any knowledge of the drugs when she was stopped in July last year.

But Bristol Crown Court heard that the 44-year-old had made eight return trips, seven from Bristol and one from Heathrow, to Cameroon and Nigeria in the 10 months leading up to her arrest.

She was also found to have travelled using a false Bristol address and money contaminated with heroin was found at her home in London.
