Nigerian national, 37, detained in India for selling drugs


Investigators from the Hyderabad Narcotic Enforcement Wing (H-NEW) and the Narayanguda police in India have detained a suspected Nigerian drug dealer.

On Friday, August 12, police detained the suspect, 37-year-old Osigwe Chukwuemeka James, at Niyaz Khana close to King Koti Hospital in Narayanguda for possessing 30 grams of MDMA.

Four cell phones, Rs. 4,000 in cash, two Cayman Islands dollar bills, and a Qatari riyal note were also taken from him by police.

Reporters were informed by M. Rajesh Chandra, deputy commissioner of police for the Central Zone, that the accused was living illegally in Hyderabad.

Police discovered that he was routinely traveling to Goa, buying MDMA, and then selling it to underprivileged customers in Hyderabad in order to make quick money.

According to investigators, the accused has been traveling to India since 2013.

According to Hyderabad-Narcotic Enforcement Wing (H-NEW) Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police Sneha Mehra, 108 people who were buying drugs from the accused have already been identified by the police. To find additional consumers, investigations were ongoing.

The results of the police investigation showed that during this trip to India, the accused flew into Rajiv Gandhi International Airport in Hyderabad on November 9, 2021, using a false passport bearing the name Alamanjo Nmasichukwu. The visa was valid until April 6, 2022.

The accused traveled to India previously using his authentic passport, which bore the name Osigwe Chukwuemeka James. He creates a phony passport anytime he is caught by the authorities and to avoid getting into any legal trouble.

He was detained by Goa police in March 2022 in accordance with the NDPS Act. He displayed his false passport as proof that he was Alamanjo Nmasichukwu.

Police added that he established a WhatsApp group for clients.

"We discovered that the majority of the clients are independent contractors, including students and engineers. Of the 108 clients, we have information on 63 of them "said the DCP.
