A notorious Nigerian drug peddler identified simply as Okey has been arrested by India Police in Jalandhar with half kg of heroin.
The accused, who was nabbed from the under bridge of Surya Enclave during routine checking, was arrested two months ago and kept behind bars.
According to Tribune India, he was released on bail days ago only for him to embark on another drug peddling move. The police said the interrogation of another Nigerian national, named Agu Emmanuel, arrested on June 14, had revealed that a drug network on a large scale was being run from Delhi and drugs were being supplied from the national Capital to Jalandhar.
During interrogation, Emmanuel, 32, said he had landed at the Mumbai airport in January on a tourist visa and had contacted his old mate Yohan at a local cloth market. He said after living in the Mohammad Arif market in Mumbai with Yohan for one month, he moved to Delhi where he met Kingsley and Iffai who was living at Om Vihar in Delhi.
Then, he was introduced to Okey, also known as Lucky, who runs drug business in Delhi and various districts of Punjab. Taking the lead, the city police arrested Okey in April this year, but he was released on bail.topics from
