George man arrested for hiding drugs in stove

BY CHARL BOSCH - SEPTEMBER 29, 2015

A 28-year old Nigerian man is expected to make a second appearance in the Thembalethu Magistrate's Court near George next month, after being found in possession of drugs worth R50 000.

Local media reports that Anthony Ozukalu tried to evade capture by running away from police, after being tracked to a house in Lawaaikamp following a tip-off. He was found not long after hiding in a yard with a bag containing drugs.

An inspection of his home later turned up 400g of tik and 480 mandrax tablets hidden in a two-plate stove. Ozukalu appeared in court on Friday but was denied bail.
