Two Nigerians held for drug peddling in Delhi

New Delhi, May 18 (IANS) Two Nigerians have been arrested in south Delhi on the charge of involvement in drug trade and 92 gm cocaine valued at Rs.50 lakh seized from them, police said on Wednesday.

Emeka Umealakei, 38, and his cousin Uzoma Joseph Umealakei, 25, were arrested on Saturday from Kotla Mubarakpur in south Delhi when they visited the area to supply cocaine to their customers, police added.

Emeka told police that he came to Delhi on a business visa but settled in Munirka in south Delhi after marrying an Indian girl in 2006.

“Emeka exported readymade garments to Nigeria. He entered the drug trade after meeting Mumbai-based Nigerian Victor to meet his expenses,” Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime Branch) Ravindra Yadav said.

Yadav said Emeka also involved his cousin Uzoma in drug peddling when he came to India in 2015 on a student visa.

“Both bought drugs from Victor and sold these in Delhi and NCR (National Capital Region). We are trying to trace Victor,” the police officer said.
