SIX Nigerians will appear in the Rustenburg magistrate's court today on charges of possessing illegal drugs, North West police said on Saturday.
The six men were arrested on Thursday following a tip-off.
According to Lieutenant Colonel Lesego Metsi, the police found cocaine, rocks and heroin, as well as R22000 cash on the premises. They also found two deposit slips to the value of R160000, which they believe could be the proceeds of selling drugs.
Metsi said the operation was aimed at "sweeping clean the area of drug trafficking before the World Cup". - Sapa
