In a major raid, the Anti Narcotic Cell (ANC) of Goa Police arrested a Nigerian lady with 150 grams of amphetamine worth Rs 15 lakhs from Mapusa, police said on Wednesday.

The Police have also seized 100 grams of Ganja from her possession.

SP ANC Akshat Kaushal said, "The Nigerian lady identified as Faith Chiemerie, 24 years, came to Goa in a Bengaluru bound inter-state bus along with the contraband at the bus stop near Green Park Hotel at Guirim, Mapusa where the ANC sleuths led by PSI Manjunath Naik apprehended her and conducted the Narcotic raid."

It may be recalled that the ANC had recently busted a hydroponic cannabis lab at Borim Ponda where a local youth was arrested for cannabis cultivation.

The ANC in its continuous effort to curb drug trade in Goa have seized narcotics worth Rs. 3.77 crores during this present year and has arrested 9 people including locals, people from other states and foreign nationals.
