 FOUR men accused of smuggling large quantity of hard drug into the United States have been arrested and handed over to the US authorities, the BCC has reported.

Two of the four suspects are Kenyan brothers Baktash and Ibrahim Akasha and were arrested in the coastal city of Mombasa in November 2014, along with Indian national Vijaygiri Goswami and Pakistani citizen Gulam Hussein, following a sting by the US Drug Enforcement Administration.

According to the BBC, the four have not yet commented on the allegations. They are expected to appear in a federal court in Manhattan later on Tuesday.

US officials allege the Akasha brothers were a crucial link in a supply chain that connects Afghanistan's poppy fields with consumers in Europe and the US.

According to a US indictment, Ibrahim Akasha personally delivered 99 kilos of heroin and two kilos of methamphetamine to undercover agents.

In a similar vein, a Nigerian Senator Kashamu Buruji is also under drug charges in the US and also under a standing order to be extradited to US to face prosecution.

The senator according to reports has threatened to retain the service of OPC mercenaries to stop his extradition to the US.
