A Nigerian staying illegally in Thailand for 14 months has been arrested on both immigration and drug charges after officers found crystal methamphetamines hidden in his anus.
A suspiciously acting Godwin Chinedu Agbarakwe, 35, was stopped by Pattaya Tourist Police on a Third Road side street on 24 February. A cavity search of his person revealed the drug in his anus.
Police said Friday that the suspect claimed he turned to selling drugs when his clothing import-export business failed.
Officers said the Nigerian entered Thailand on a three-month visa on 8 September 2012.
He has been overstaying that visa since 8 December, 2012.
