A total of 17 grams of wrapped drugs have been retrieved from two Nigerian students, one of whom was a lady who was reported to have sold drugs to the Department of Narcotics and Anti-Smuggling in Cyprus.
The duo, Onuwa Kachıkwu and Uduak Emmanuel, were arrested on Wednesday, May 6, 2020 and charged with receiving, selling and storing illicit drugs when they appeared before Judge Hazal Hacımulla of the Nicosia Accident Court yesterday.
Murat Özkırdar, the police officer who busted them, also discovered $3750, €400, £50, and 1100 TL in a shoe box in their room. The money is believed to be proceeds of illicit drugs sales.
The judge ordered the suspects to remain in detention for 5 days so that the investigation could be conducted safely.
