Bengaluru: The city police arrested five people, including a Nigerian, for drug peddling in two separate cases. Ganja, charas and other narcotic substances worth several lakhs of rupees were seized. The Koramangala police arrested two people for drug peddling. The accused have been identified as Okonkwo Basil Ndubisi alias Kevin, 30, a Nigerian, and a resident of DGS Layout in Maragondanahalli off T. C. Palya Main Road, and Abbas Mustan Seer Zanjeer Barwala, 23, who hails from Mumbai and a resident of Adugodi.

According to the police, they received a tip off about two people supplying narcotic substances to college students and software professionals. The police arrested the duo and seized 4.2 kg of ganja, 120 gram of charas and five grams of cocaine from them. “Ndubisi had come to India on student visa, which had expired and he had not renewed it. In 2015, he was arrested by the Mico Layout police for selling drugs and the trial is on. Barwala had joined Ndubisi to make easy money by selling drugs in small sachets at higher prices. Another Nigerian was supplying them narcotics, and efforts are on to nab him," the police said.

 

In another operation conducted by Commercial Street police, three people hailing from Manipur were arrested while trying to sell drugs to college students near RBANM College. Mohammed Ijaz, 24, a resident of Kammanahalli, Mohammed Syed Ziya-Ul-Haq, 28, and Mohammed Habibur Rehman, 43, both residents of Shivajinagar, are the accused. "They used to purchase heroin from another person, also from Manipur, for Rs 2,500-3,000 per gram and used to sell it at double the price. We have seized 103 grams of heroin worth Rs 5 lakh from them," the police added.
