A Nigerian man who hires women as drug mules to smuggle drugs overseas, has been arrested by the police in Thailand. Arrest of the 34-year-old Nigerian man who was identified as ‘Paul Smith Brown’ came, after he contacted an aide who turned out to be a police informant to help him smuggle drugs overseas.
Lt Gen Surachate who spoke to newsmen said a hotel room in Suk Sawat Soi was raided and 324 grammes of crystal meth was found wrapped and stuffed inside socks after the suspect met the informant in front of a shopping mall in Samut Prakan’s Phra Pradaeng district on Saturday. The Nigerian man who reportedly hires women as drug mules, faces charges of unlawfully possessing Type-1 drugs and illegally entering the country as he was also unable to present a passport or any identification documents. Paul also took to police to his condominium in Bangkok’s Rat Burana district for a further search, where they found a digital weighing scale that was used to weigh drugs, according to the IB chief.
