KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) – The Nigerian underworld reared its ugly head when the police thwarted four attempts to smuggle drugs into the country, seizing about eight kilogrammes of syabu at a courier company in Petaling Jaya on Friday and Monday.
There was no arrest in connection with the seizure of the drug worth about RM800,000.
Narcotics Criminal Investigation Department director Datuk Seri Noor Rashid Ibrahim said an international syndicate masterminded by a group of Nigerians used Guangdong, China as a base to despatch the syabu to Malaysia.
“We inspected a box at the courier company on Friday about 7pm, only to find 2.5kg of syabu hidden in a rubber roller machine,” he told a media conference at the Bukit Aman police headquarters yesterday.
In a follow-up operation, Noor Rashid said another box containing bicycle accessories was inspected at the company whereby, the police found a carbon paper package containing 1.9kg of syabu hidden in the sponge of the bicycle seat.
