Nigerian, Pinay caught with P4 million worth of shabu

A 54-year-old Filipina and a 42-year-old Nigerian man were arrested after allegedly being caught with millions worth of alleged shabu in Las Piñas City.

The suspects were unaware that a PDEA agent was pretending to be a delivery boy who delivered a parcel allegedly containing about P4 million worth of shabu.


According to the PDEA, the package contents were declared sterilizer from Laos, but when it passed through the X-ray machine, it turned out to be shabu.

The arrested Filipina said that for the second time, he allegedly received a package in exchange for P2,000 for the Nigerian and his female companion, whom he had only met on social media.

The Nigerian said it was not for him and that he was not waiting for a package.


The PDEA is still investigating the case, but they suspect that the Nigerian and the Filipina are part of the syndicate.

Meanwhile, some parents still do not want their children to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Elvie Gazmin of Quezon City is afraid to vaccinate her 6-year-old child.

“Kasi may mga instance po kasi na ano … May nagsasabi na huwag pabakunahan ’yung anak mo kasi hindi pa daw sure talaga ’yung ano sa para sa bata. Tapos di rin ako sure baka mamaya doon lumabas ’yung sakit ng anak ko. Di ko alam magiging epekto sa kanya ng gamot kasi ano naman ’yun virus … Takot talaga ako” said Elvie.

But others also want their children to be vaccinated against COVID-19, especially since they are slowly returning to school.

The DOH continues to call for vaccination as the threat of COVID-19 remains.
