Two Nigerian students were among several arrested in an international drug syndicate bust. They are believed to have been smuggling heroin from the Golden Crescent, made up of Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Two local women, aged 19 and 21 years, whom police believe to be partners of the Nigerian duo, were also arrested. The women are believed to have been drug peddlers in the Klang Valley.

Acting on a tip-off, narcotics police found 2.5kg of heroin in a car driven by the women. The drugs were smuggled through the Kuala Lumpur International Airport and had a local street value of RM250,000.

Police then raided an apartment in Kepong where they found the Nigerians, one a 27-year-old computer student and the other a business administration student.
