A Nigerian man has been arrested alongside others for drug peddling in India.
The suspects who have been identified as Okonkwo Basil Ndubisi alias Kevin, 30, a Nigerian, and Abbas Mustan Seer Zanjeer Barwala, 23, who hails from Mumbai and a resident of Adugodi – were nabbed by police after a tip off.
Various narcotic substances were seized from the suspects, according to reports.
According to DeccanChronicle, the police received a tip off about two people supplying narcotic substances to college students and software professionals. The police arrested the duo and seized 4.2 kg of ganja, 120 gram of charas and five grams of cocaine from them.
“Ndubisi had come to India on student visa, which had expired and he had not renewed it.
In 2015, he was arrested by the Mico Layout police for selling drugs and the trial is on. Barwala had joined Ndubisi to make easy money by selling drugs in small sachets at higher prices.
Another Nigerian was supplying them narcotics, and efforts are on to nab him,” the police said.
