2 Nigerians arrested for drug smuggling in India, one lands in the hospital
Narcotics Control Bureau, Chandigarh Zonal Unit have seized 536g of Heroin and arrested two Nigerians namely Alitumo Ifedi Shedrack and Ikechukwu Orji. Alitumo, was admitted to Government Multi Specialty Hospital (GMSH), with illness and his associate, Ikechukwu Orji, was remanded in judicial custody.

The Narcotics Control Bureau has also requested Chandigarh police to file a fresh FIR against them as they failed to produce their passports.

NCB Zonal Director Kaustubh Sharma said, “Investigation suggested that an elder brother of Alitumo went to Nigeria with his passport, two months back, and handed over all his contacts, who used to receive heroin from him, to Alitumo.”

Sources in the NCB said Orji claimed to have sold his passport to someone for Rs 20,000. Investigation revealed that Alitumo arrived in India from Nigeria five months back and his elder brother decided to hand over all his contacts to him.

Sources said Alitumo’s elder brother was scared that his business of supplying heroin would be grabbed by his competitor in his absence and so, he called his younger brother from Nigeria.

On preliminary enquiry, it was revealed that both suspects are doing cloth business apart from doing drug smuggling. It is also revealed that they have connection with a Nigerian national arrested earlier with 415g of Heroin.
