Nigerian man arrested in drug bust in Philippines

A Nigerian, Valentine Ezike, has been arrested by agents from the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency Regional Office 4-A in Barangay Biclatan, Cavite, Philippines.

The Philippine News Agency cited a PDEA report on Sunday saying that authorities seized from Ezike of Palmdale Village, Governor’s Hill, around 500 grams of suspected ‘shabu’ (a variant of methamphetamine), a box containing two transparent resealable plastic bags containing about 1,000 grams each of brownish granular substance, plastic basin containing scales, and four identification cards, among others.

The PDEA said Ezike was believed to be a member of the West African Drug Syndicate which recruits Filipinos to transport illegal drugs.

Ezike will be charged with violation of sections 5 and 11, Article II of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
