An alleged Nigerian drug dealer was shot dead during a buy-bust operation at a hotel in Bagong Ilog in Pasig City, the Phillippine National Police Drug Enforcement Group (PNP-DEG) said on Tuesday, January 

The Nigerian identified as Emmanuel Christopher Chukwuma, a resident of Angeles City in Pampanga, was killed because he allegedly fought back the arresting officers, said DEG director, Bri. Gen.  Ronald Lee.

Police allegedly discovered PHP13.6 million (US$283,000) worth of meth in his possession.  Chukwuma was allegedly the leader of a gang composed of fellow Nigerians who sell drugs in different parts of Luzon.

Police said he was a partner of another Nigerian, Gabriel Onyechefula, who was killed in a police operation in Concepcion, Tarlac last December. He was abled to escape the sting operation where two kilos of drugs and a machine pistol were confiscated, until same operatives managed to track him down, the PDEG said.
