The Anjuna Police, a village in South-West of India, have said a Nigerian citizen who died during the weekend at India was a victim of drug overdose.
The victim Michael Nzube, 33 year of age, was hospitalised at St. Anthony Hospital and Research Centre, Anjuna, on Thursday after he suffered what seemed like a meltdown in a taxi.
According to source, the police in India made this known on Thursday morning, adding that a taxi driver at Arpora stopped his vehicle by Bollywood Nights Restaurant, saying his passenger, Nzube, had suddenly became so violent.
The workers at the restaurant also called the police when they could not curtailed the Nigerian. On sighting the police arriving, Nzube was said to have became more violent and allegedly started assaulting the owner of restaurant and one of the staff members.
He was also said to have damaged some things in the taxi.
The police with the help of staff of the restaurant managed to handle him and take him to the hospital.
The owner of the restaurant also later lodged a complaint against Nzube for assault.
The police stated that “they later received a copy of letter from the hospital, saying Nzube had died of suspected drug overdose.
“Nzube was once arrested by Calangute police in 2019 for illegal possession of drugs and was recently released from judicial custody.”
However the India police noted that investigation would continue into the matter.
