KUALA LUMPUR (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - A Nigerian living like a king in his little palace hideout in Lukut, Port Dickson, was nabbed by the police on suspicion of running a multi-million ringgit international drug syndicate.

After six months of surveillance, police moved in on the 32-year-old Nigerian, who has been living a life of luxury in his bungalow house on Saturday and nabbed him and his 31-year-old live-in girlfriend whom he referred to as his wife.

Police investigations also revealed that the suspect, who had been operating in the country for less than a year, owns a hotel in his home country believed to be paid for with money gained from his illegal activities in Malaysia.

Bukit Aman director of Anti-Narcotics Investigations Department Commissioner Datuk Noor Rashid Ibrahim said police seized two cars - a BMW and a Toyota Camry - from the suspect who is also believed to own several high-value properties in the country.
