Ex Nigerian footballer captured for sneaking cocaine

Ex Nigerian footballer named Emanuel was captured for supposedly pirating cocaine worth a few lakhs of rupees from South Kolkata's Hazra area on Tuesday night.

He was captured following a tip-off from a Nigerian lady, Okosun Christiana, from Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport in the last week of October. Christiana and Emanuel both had contacts with Nigerians in Kolkata.

The police claimed Emanuel’s name had cropped up in connection with drug peddling in the past too. Emanuel played club level football for various clubs in Kolkata.
The police also mentioned that Emanuel was involved in peddling drugs worth several lakhs of rupees. He was reportedly arrested with drugs in his possession.
It has emerged that Christiana told the police that Emanuel had contacts with scores of Nigerians in Kolkata, who too were consumers of the drug. They would maintain links with DJs and various night clubs in the city, the police said.
Names of more footballers are expected to be revealed in the narcotics smuggling racket.
