The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Thursday, December 17, arrested a Nigerian professor, Nwagwu Princewill Chika, with 10.2 gm of cocaine and 1 blot of LSD.
According to NCB officers, the graduate of Imo State University was arrested following an intelligence input by the Mumbai team. He was arrested during a raid in Nalasopara.
It was gathered that Chika used to teach about the functioning of the government. He travelled to India in 2017 on a tourist visa, which expired in 2018.
“He is not cooperating with us and not sharing the passwords of his electronic gadgets,” an officer privy to the investigation said. Adding that the NCB differentiates the quantity of drugs or banned substances in three levels – small, intermediate and commercial.
