Police in Phuket, Thailand have arrested a Nigerian seller of crack, after a sting operation. The operation involved a series of small drug busts that concluded with the arrest of the Nigerian, identified as Ibenuba Henry Onyinyechukwu.

“Last night, we were informed that Somkid ‘Waew’ Kwanngern, 30, was in possession of cocaine so we went to her apartment behind Patong Municipality Fire Department,” said Lt Col Sutthichai Thianpho of the Patong Police.

“She arrived at the apartment at about 7pm. We asked to search her and found 1.2 grams of cocaine,” said Col Suttichai.

Ms Waew told police that she had bought the cocaine from a foreign male through one of her friends and led the police to her friend, named in the arrest report as British national Curtis Martin Taylor, 32, at his apartment on 50 Pi Road.

“We searched him and found one gram of marijuana in his pocket,” said Col Sutthichai.

Police questioned Mr Martin, who told them about the Nigerian. Officers then set up a sting operation involving Ms Somkid to arrest Mr Onyinyechukwu.

“Ms Somkid called Mr Onyinyechukwu asking for 2,500 baht worth of cocaine. They arranged to meet and make the exchange at Mr Martin’s place at KK Apartment,” said Col Suttichai.

Mr Onyinyechukwu soon arrived at the apartment with 5.45 grams of cocaine.

“The two exchanged the drugs and the money, which were fake banknotes provided by police. Ms Somkid signalled the hidden officers after the money was handed over,” explained Col Sutthichai.

Police apprehended Mr Onyinyechukwu and charged him with possession of a Category 2 drug with intent to sell, said Col Sutthichai.

Ms Somkid was also charged with possession of a Category 2 drug and Mr Martin was charged with possession of a Category 5 drug.

    Uh! Naija, so when will Nigerians learn to respect the laws of their host country.? Onyinyechukwu, your compartriots back home are terrorising Nigerians on the highways robbing them of their monies, others are engaged in fraudulents activities of all kinds, One cannot easily trust your brothers back home because they are first criminals until they proves otherwise; why must this be so, isn’t there a limit to everything in life.? Must you acquire wealth at any cost in life even if the route to getting it is undignifying.? All these nonsense is for the reason of driving a JEEP to the village to impress your unsuspecting rural folks. May you and others like you never get out the disgraceful mess you’ve subjected the image Nigeria to.
