The Indian authority has nabbed another  Nigerian national again from Andheri for possession of 117 grams of Cocaine by a team deployed for night patrolling on Thursday.



It will be recalled that the Indian Authority has arrested over 20 Nigerians for drugs in the last two months.

The Nigerian was apprehended over suspicion after his gait gave him away and the contraband was seized. He has been booked under relevant sections of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substance (NDPS) Act.

The Nigerian national was apprehended and booked under relevant sections of the NDPS Act. Anayo said that he was to deliver the drugs to a customer in Andheri (E), and had travelled from Nalasopara.

In a crackdown on drug peddlers in the city, Mumbai Police had ramped up the night patrolling. During one such patrolling round, a team from Andheri police station saw a man moving suspiciously with a bag near Divate Chawl, on Gundavali service road in Andheri (E), at around 10.45pm.

Upon interception, the accused, identified as Christain Anayo, a Nigerian national, even tried to overpower the police team, claiming his innocence.

When the police, however, checked his bag, they found 117 grams of Cocaine, a banned drug, valued at ₹7.77 lakh in the international market.
