Navi Mumbai: It took 11 cops to subdue and arrest a Nigerian national near a garden at MiniSeashore in sector 9, Vashi on Thursday night.The accused, Nwafor Igwe Cheema, was found in possession of 263 gm of methaqualone powder also called as ‘MD rock’, worth around Rs 5.26 lakh, on Thursday night.
The well-built accused resisted arrest by pushing away three cops and attempting to flee, but eight other cops rounded him up and he was finally trapped between the creek and a compound wall of a society and arrested. But it required three police officers and eight constables to overpower the accused, who had turned fierce, said a source.
Since July 2015 till date, the Vashi police claims to have arrested as many as 16 Nigerians from Juhugaon, Koparkhairane and Ghansoli areas, for various criminal offences, said senior inspector Ajay Landge.
