COCAINE

The accused, identified as Ekene Okeke (26), hails from Lagos. He was apprehended at Shalimar Bagh on the night of February 23, said police.

The arrest came following investigation into an input that a few Nigerians were involved in supplying cocaine to clients, especially in hotels and discotheques. Okeke told police that he had come to deliver cocaine to a person on the directions of his boss.

Okeke is a well-known footballer in Nigeria, and has played for a reputed football club in Lagos, police said.

On his first visit to India in 2008 Okeke met Prince, who lured the former to work for him. Okeke had gone back to Nigeria in that year, but the lure of making a quick buck by supplying drugs prompted him to come to India again this year.
