Bengaluru: Two Nigerians and one Ghanaian were arrested by the Central Crime Branch (CCB) police on drug peddling charges in two separate cases in the city.
In the first incident, two persons identified as Ernest Ugah, 38, a Ghana national, and Fernand Ubah, 36, a Nigerian, were arrested while trying to sell cocaine in Hennur in East Bengaluru. The police seized 20 grams of cocaine, three mobiles, a two-wheeler worth Rs 1.5 lakh from them.
Police said the duo, residents in Hennur area, had come to India on a business visa and began peddling drugs. A case has been registered against them at Hennur police station.
In the second incident, a Nigerian national identified as Madu Abukwu Ubaka, 28, a resident of Hennur, was held along with 180 LSD papers and 19 MDMA tablets. Police also seized a laptop, tablet, two mobile phones, his two-wheeler.
Police said that Ubaka had come to India on a business visa.
We wish to observe that while Ernest Ugah is listed as a Ghanaian as he must apparently have entered India with a Ghanaian passport, his name would seem to suggest he is also a Nigerian. WHAT DO YOU THINK?.
