A suspected Nigerian drug dealer identified as Ojengwa Emmanuel Osondu has been arrested by the police in India.
During the arrest, 5 grams of cocaine worth Rs. 60,000 (over N10m) was seized 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.
