Man faces court after $10m ice bust in Canberra

A Nigerian man will face court today for allegedly smuggling $10 million worth of ice into Australia through three golden fish statues.

The AFP arrested the 32 year old man in Canberra on Saturday, after he had collected and opened the drug containers, while he was trying to board a bus to Sydney.

The man is reported to have entered Australia this July on a student visa.


The drugs were imported from China earlier this month, with the package linked to two addresses in Canberra.

The Nigerian national will be charged with attempting to possess a commercial quantity of an unlawfully imported border control drug in an ACT Magistrate’s Court today.
