A Nigerian man alongside two others have been apprehended by the Mumbai police's Anti-Narcotics Cell (ANC), for alleged possession of mephedrone worth Rs 37.5 lakh (N20,678,162.13) in Navi Mumbai, an official said on Saturday, July 10.

Acting on a tip-off, the Ghatkopar unit of the ANC laid a trap near Agarwadi bus stop on Sion-Panvel Highway in Govandi on Friday evening, and nabbed Francis Augustin D'Souza, 29, with 45 gm of mephedrone.
