Never too old for a new career — but 6.5 tons of pot?

Nigeria’s anti-narcotics agency confiscated six and a half tons of marijuana from the home of a man who claimed to be 114-years-old.

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency said it had found 254 sacks of cannabis at the home of Sulaiman Adebayo in Ogun state, north of Lagos.

Buying a ticket would have been less costly

An international student [from Nigeria] offered police $50,000 to “forget what happened” when he was caught on a Brisbane train without a ticket, which would have cost $3.80.

Jehoiachin Onyins Ogbe, 25, ended up on bribery charges for offering police $50,000 after they caught him evading a $3.80 train fare.

He will also be deported from the country for overstaying his visa, the Brisbane District Court heard today.

More via The Courier-Mail.

$50,000? Where does a student get $50,000? Of course he is from Nigeria…
