SHAH ALAM: Police have busted a Nigerian drug trafficking syndicate, using women's shoes, to ship drugs.
The 'unique' modus operandi is the first of its kind, catering to customers overseas but the packing of the drugs is done in Gombak, said Selangor Narcotics chief Asst Comm Nordin Kadir on Thursday.
Three Nigerian men, who are students of private colleges were detained on Tuesday, along with the seizure of more than RM380,000 worth of heroin.
The syndicate has been active for six months, gaining entry to the country using student passes.
