It appears Dubai Police has arrested an international drug lord, Nordin EH in the emirate, as per reports by Dutch news outlets and by the Belgian city of Antwerp’s police force.
Wanted drug lord
Nordin EH was a central suspect part of an international cocaine trafficking ring as well as reportedly the brains behind a series of grenade attacks in 2017 in Antwerp, the second biggest city in Belgium after Brussels. EH was traced through a dock worker who misplaced a drug shipment, and hence targeted by a series of attacks involving the use of grenades and AK-47’s, by the orders of the notorious drug mafia.
