BUREAU of Immigration (BI) agents arrested two Nigerians for illegal drug trading and a Taiwanese for arms trafficking this week.

Arrested in a mall in Imus, Cavite last September 13 were John Chukwuemeka Enuka, 41, and Ugochukwu Christopher Nwabufo, 31.

Members of the BI’s fugitive search unit (FSU) arrested the duo in a joint operation with the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Regional Office-National Capital Region, the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Task Force Against Illegal Drugs (TFAID) and government intelligence units.

They were arrested through a buy-bust after being caught selling illegal drugs in violation of Republic Act 9165 or Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.

A big volume of marijuana and heroin with a street value of P8 million were seized from the two Nigerians.

Meanwhile, BI FSU agents arrested on September 14 Taiwanese Chen Kai-Wun, 55, in General Trias, Cavite.

The Taiwanese government tagged Chen as a fugitive from justice and is also considered an undesirable alien.

Chen is a subject of an arrest warrant issued by the Shilin District Prosecutors Office for Violation of the Controlling Guns, Ammunition and Knives Act of Taiwan in May 2023.

He is said to be a leader of a Taiwanese syndicate involved in arms trafficking. Chen is also allegedly involved in facilitating unlawful entry of another Taiwanese fugitive into the Philippines.
