One of the Nigerians, who were arrested by Special Cell of Delhi Police 10 days ago for running a cocaine racket in south Delhi, has turned out to be a famous Nigerian actor.

According to the police, Akanbi Olamilekan Mohammed (30) revealed during interrogation that he has acted in several movies and had come to India for a film-making course.

Three people, including two Nigerian nationals, were arrested on March 30 and 122 grams of the contraband were seized from their possession.

"We had first arrested a businessman who told police that Akanbi used to supply cocaine to him. Akanbi was later held with 10 grams of premium quality cocaine from Saket. He told us about his acting career and that he acted in four movies," said a senior police officer who didn't want to be named.
