The team later identified Anayo's house and raided his premises and apprehended him with 282 grams of cocaine.
"During interrogation, it was revealed that Anayo Godswill had come to India eight years ago and began a live-in relationship with an Indian woman and moved in with her to her Uttam Nagar residence. The money he earned from the sale of drug was invested by him in exporting Indian sarees to Nigeria, where his elder brother runs a garment shop," said Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime Branch), Rajesh Deo.
