Nigerian drug supplier and romance scammer arrested in Phuket

A Nigerian man, previously arrested for drug-related offences and deported from Thailand, was arrested yesterday by officers from the Phuket Provincial Immigration Office and Chalong Police Station for his drug dealing and romance rip-off activities in Phuket.
According to the police report, the forty 12 months outdated Nigerian, Harrison Shinonzo Onyema, was deported in 2018 for overstaying his visa and selling cocaine. However, he re-entered the country illegally by crossing the border from Cambodia and hiding in a home within the Rawai sub-district of Phuket.
Onyema dedicated the same crime once more by promoting cocaine to people in the province and working a romance rip-off. He created a faux profile on Facebook, pretending to be a beautiful and rich girl, and deceived Thai men by promising to share his riches if they married him. Once the victims have been convinced, he would tell them that he had sent them presents or cash, but they wanted to pay taxes. Those who paid the taxes discovered too late that the money went into Onyema’s pocket and by no means received any parcels.
Furthermore, Onyema also lured Thai women to work for him. He used their identities to hire a house, or automobile, register Thai cell SIM cards, and open financial institution accounts. However, he didn’t use any of the companies and merely hid in the house.
The Thai police received a tip-off and raided his home yesterday. They knocked on the door, but Onyema did not reply. When he lastly opened the door for the officers, he couldn’t present his entry doc and visa. The officers searched the home, but they discovered no unlawful substances. According to Pay zero , Onyema had flushed the bathroom a quantity of occasions earlier than opening the door to the police. The officers believed that he had destroyed all the medicine by throwing them into the toilet.
As a result, the officers couldn’t seize any proof, and expenses towards Onyema were not yet issued. The officers would conduct more investigations into his felony actions and collect proof before proceeding with costs.
Two weeks in the past, Thai and German drug sellers have been arrested for smuggling medicine into Koh Phra Ngan, an island within the southern province of Surat Thani. They were arrested once they went to choose up the parcel from Germany which was a scented candle full of 1,370 ecstasy tablets.
A week before that incident, the officers from the Airport Interdiction Task Force (AITF) arrested a Kenyan woman at Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok after discovering 2,353 grammes of cocaine was hidden in her luggage..
