Nigerian Drug Dealer Shot Dead In Indonesia

A Nigerian drug dealer has been shot dead in Indonesia. The deceased was a member of a Malaysian-based drug ring with another Nigerian national and a Tanzanian woman.

They were nabbed in their attempts to smuggle marijuana and crystal methamphetamine into Indonesia.
The National Police Chief, General Tito Karnavian, weekend, confirmed the arrests and death to newsmen at Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.

According to him, customs officials at the airport arrested the Tanzanian woman as she arrived from Kuala Lumpur in the early hours of Wednesday, January 4th.

He said the officials confiscated 138 grams of crystal meth hidden in 20 capsules and three grams of marijuana tucked into her underpants, and 66 more capsules of crystal meth that she had swallowed, adding that the police and Customs officials have foiled 673 drug smuggling attempts into Indonesia between 2014 and 2017, and seized more than 2,000 kilograms of drugs.

Also confirming the arrests, Customs and Excise director general Heru Pambudi said: “We arrested the woman after conducting data screening.

“The Tanzanian woman had traveled to Indonesia on her boyfriend’s instructions, a Uganda national in Malaysia.

“Customs officials later teamed up with police officers to arrest two Nigerian men who were going to receive the drugs from the woman at a restaurant in Central Jakarta.

“Both men were allegedly part of the Malaysia-based drug ring.

“They resisted the police’s attempt to arrest them and tried to flee the scene, prompting officers to shoot.

“One of the men died at the scene.

“The Indonesian police have turned their attention to the Malaysian drug ring lately.

“Better data and information exchange with the Customs Office has helped us enormously in investigating the Malaysian drug ring,”

Pambudi said, noting that the names of the suspects would be revealed upon completion of investigation.
