Police in India have arrested a suspected Nigerian drug peddler, Ojengwa Emmanuel Osondu and seized 5 grams of cocaine worth Rs. 60,000 (over N10m) from his possession. 


Osondu, 34, a Mumbai resident, was arrested by the sleuths of the Hyderabad Narcotic Enforcement Wing and Bahadurpura police on Wednesday, January 24, 2023, while he was selling a cocaine sample to city-based drug peddler Level Arjun in Bahadurpura.


The police said that Emmanuel Osandu, of Enugu state, came to India in 2016
on a student visa and has been residing in Mumbai since.


He was previously arrested by the Goregaon police in December 2020 in an NDPS Act case.

Besides the contraband, the police seized his mobile phone. They are in the
process of identifying Arjun and other peddlers and consumers, a press
release issued by H-New DCP Gummi Chakravarthy stated.
