Barely two months ago, two Nigerians were arrested by police in India for reportedly dealing in drug trade.
According to report in India’s Mail Today, the duo of 23-year-old Kenneth Jideo and 27-year-old Obuneme Victor were arrested by police in Bengaluru for selling cocaine.
Both men, who were in Bengaluru on business visa, had reportedly started drug trade since the last six months, according to India police.
The duo reportedly confessed to the police that they got the drugs from Nigerian friends and police suspects the involvement of a gang from Goa in supplying cocaine to drug peddlers in Bengaluru.
