Two Nigerian men – Ayooluwa David Adebakin and Olugu Olisaaemeka Emmanuel – studying at a private college in Kattankulathur in India have been arrested by the Narcotics Intelligence Bureau (NIB) for supplying marijuana to fellow college students.
“We received a tip off about the suspects distributing ganja in sachets to college students. The duo carried the contraband in their bags and sold them to students,” NIB inspector S Prabhakar said in local media reports.
The suspects had been receiving payment through digital wallets after selling the contraband.
Adebakin, a third-year BBA student, and Emmanuel, a second-year BSc student, reportedly confessed during questioning that they collected cash from the students through payment apps like Google Pay and Phone Pe.
The seven kg of ganja worth Rs 1 lakh was packed in small sachets, said police, who have also seized a weighing machine from their house.
