Rabat, Morocco (TMT)- The Moroccan authorities arrested last week (on Friday) a Nigerian national who was smuggling 1.05 kilograms of cocaine inside his stomach.
The Moroccan authorities said that the Nigerian national was clearly hiding something as he did not look quite comfortable in their presence.
The man was taken to Casablanca’s Ibn Rush hospital, where he was subject to a surgery to remove the drugs from his stomach.
The Nigerian national had just landed from a flight coming from Brazil, the authorities said.
An investigation was launched, and the Nigerian national will stand soon before a judge to defend himself against heavy drug trafficking charges.
