Nigerian Arrested in India With $1.4M Worth Cocaine



The Indian police has arrested a Nigerian, identified as Eneh Wilfried Amobi, for allegedly possessing cocaine worth $1.4m at a suburban railway station in Mumbai.

The Indian local newspaper said a team from the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) caught him after a tip-off by a ticket checker. According to an official, Amobi , 47, was caught with a large quantity of contraband.

“Wilfried said he was as a tourist and as he wanted $200 to return home, he offered to smuggle the drug,” NCB zonal director Mumbai and Goa region told, Kumar Sanjay Jha. The drugs weighing 1.3kg was to be delivered to someone in the city, an official said.


The drugs were concealed in courier packets and were in his bag.


“As foreign nationals are asked to show passports even for domestic flights, couriers prefer trains,” said Jha.

The agency said Amobi was one among the many couriers entrusted by a city-based cartel to smuggle the drugs into the city.

“We suspect that at least four people were involved. The packets changed hands at various railway stations to dodge authorities,” said Jha.

According to the police, the suspects booked tickets in first class AC, second AC and AC 3 tier.

According to a source, Amobi got down from the Delhi-Mumbai Rajdhani Express and was about to take a local train. A ticket checker stopped him and asked for a ticket. NCB said it was all part of a trap to buy time after which Wilfried was caught.
