The Moroccan authorities on Friday, arrested a Nigerian national who was smuggling 1.05 kilograms of cocaine inside his stomach.
According to Moroccan Times, authorities said that the Nigerian man raised suspicion because he did not look quite comfortable in their presence. He was then taken to Casablanca’s Ibn Rush hospital, where he was subjected to a surgery to remove the drugs from his stomach.
The suspect had just landed from a flight coming from Brazil when he was arrested. An investigation was launched and he will stand soon before a judge to defend himself against heavy drug trafficking charges.
