Police on Sunday arrested two Nigerian nationals from the upscale Jubilee Hills area in Hyderabad on a charge of drug peddling, and recovered 8 grams of cocaine from them.

Police team raided a place near Durgam Cheruvu main gate and apprehended Sakiry Oladotum Akinsola and Okechnkwu Ohazurike, said Inspector K Narsing Rao.

"The duo was nabbed as they arrived there to deliver cocaine to a customer. Police recovered 8 grams of it from their possession," he said.

Sakiry, who lives in Hyderabad, supplied spare parts to Nigeria. "He himself took cocaine, which he bought from `Jackson', a Ugandan national, Rao said.

Okechnkwu knew some cocaine buyers in the city, and Sakiry gave him a share of profits for getting customers.
