A Nigerian man identified as Rufus Okafor was arrested in Uganda after the Police Anti-Narcotics Department and Postal agency found out he was connected to some parcels containing 19kg of marijuana and 795g of heroin worth Ksh229m that had been stopped from being shipped to the Netherlands.
Okafor is supposed to be a student of Kampala University and according to the security manager of the Ugandan postal agency, Oneal Kangahho, investigations conducted earlier revealed that trafficking of the contraband was mostly done by Nigerians in Uganda. The drugs were discovered wrapped inside a couple of traditional beating drums.
Okafor will appear in court today. If found guilty, he could get 3-month imprisonment, a Shs1 million fine or both.
