Nigerian Man Caught In Australia With $10 Million Drugs Hidden In Gold Statue

A Nigerian,  Jackson Igwebuike, could face life imprisonment for allegedly smuggling $10million worth of drugs into Australia inside a gold fish statue.

Sydney border force officers found 10kg of highly addictive drug hidden inside one of three gold-coloured fish statues destined for a residential address in Kaleen, north of Canberra.

Police were alerted and arrested the 32-year-old after he picked up the statues, removed the drugs, and tried to board a bus bound for Sydney on Saturday.

The drug stash, which had been imported from China, was found on the man when he was arrested, Daily Mail reports.

Jackson Igwebuike is a student of University of Canberra. On his Facebook page, he claims to be a graduate of University of Benin. He arrived in Australia in July on a student visa, and is due to face the ACT Magistrates Court.
