A Nigerian man yesterday, March 6, appeared before Dubai Criminal Court after being arrested with more than a kilogram of cocaine wrapped around his waist.
He was charged with attempting to carry 50 capsules of cocaine through Dubai to Nigeria. Prosecutors said a police officer suspected the man and asked for his passport.
“When I asked him for an identification document, he became tense, therefore I requested him to accompany me to the inspection room,” said policeman A H, 60.
“The area around his waist was bloated, but he refused to uncover it,” said A H. The policeman had to call a major at the anti-narcotics office in the airport.
“When we asked him about the drugs, he said it was cocaine and that he was taking them to Nigeria after he brought them from Brazil,” said A H.
