Nigerian Held For Carrying Cocaine In India

The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) sleuths on Wednesday caught a Nigerian national with 155.5gm of contraband valued at Rs 93 lakh in the international market. Ozy Chukwudu, 30, was smuggling it from Mumbai in a bus.

Chukwudu was intercepted when he disembarked from a sleeper bus in the city. With specific information of cocaine smuggling, the NCB team was waiting for his arrival from Mumbai.

Chukwudu, who did not have a passport and other documents, was carrying a polythene bag with 11 capsules which contained cocaine.

The drug was brought to Mumbai by an unidentified man hiding it in his stomach and was later handed over to Chukwudu to be brought to Bengaluru.

 He was produced before the court yesterday.
