4 Nigerian drug traffickers remanded in Indian prison | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Four Nigerian drug trafficking suspects, Ugochukwu Solomon Ubabuko, Obiora Chukwuemeka Peter, Ezeh Christian Chukwu and Uzor Promise Chukuwudi, have been remanded in the Chanchalguda Central Prison, Hyderabad, India, after they were arrested by the Narcotic Drug and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) department on August 16, 2016, in a joint sting operation.

The four accused were reported to have allegedly purchased Cocaine worth for Rs.2,800 (about N131,781), per gram, through their dealers from the Goa State and delivered the same for Rs.5000 and Rs.6000 (N235,000 and N282,000), to end users in Hyderabad to gain easy profit, authorities said.

According to the statement released by the police, the four were nabbed after the Narcotic officials staged a sting operation and busted their hideouts.

"Their illegal and highly dangerous activities of peddling of Narcotic Drug, i.e Cocaine, among the innocent people of Hyderabad City, have been endangering the lives of youth and innocent people, causing irreparable damage to the body parts including central Nervous System.

Their actions thereby crippled the mental and physical health of the people who are addicted to drugs, thereby adversely affecting the public order and public health at large and leaving large sections of people under the grip of shock and fear.

To control the activities of drug offenders in Hyderabad City, to promote safety and security in the City, a special drive is continuing to control activities of criminals who are indulging in unlawful acts such as the supply of Narcotic Drug."

"The drug offenders who are citizens of Nigeria, have been detained in the Central Prison pending sentencing."

The punishment for drug trafficking in India carries between 10 to 20 years imprisonment on conviction.

  1. I hope you are reporting the Yoruba drug dealers too NE. You rush to report an negative news involving Igbos

    1. Why do you think NE only report drugs activities of the igbos alone? Even if the Yoruba are into drug pedalling I'm sure the igbos are more into it than the Yoruba. It seems they don't value lives that much.

    2. You are a shameless person.Instead to condemn their acts you are there promoting ethnicity.The whole world know that 80% of crime committed in Nigeria are from east.

  2. Well done Igbo kwenu. The so called light of the world. There u go again destroying Nigeria's image for the rest of us. From Malaysia to China to Laos and anywhere that Nigerian drug smugglers are mentioned, u will find at least 2 Igbo men. Well done. Why can't the FG allow them to have a peaceful referendum and let them leave for their Biafra? They ain't doing much being part of Nigeria anyway. Please

  3. Some group of people will soon blame PMB for these desperate group of people.

  4. Nd'Igbo kwezienuoooo!

  5. No wonder d country is in a dump.Tribal bigots r everywhere in our country.The last time I checked,some Yoruba and Hausa people were caught recently for peddling drugs.Enough with this nonsense
