The cocaine which has a street market value of $1.5 million does not bear the pastor’s fingerprints but immediate forensic tests have proved his connection.

He arrived from Johannesburg, South Africa on Delta Airlines and the bag containing the 10kg cocaine which bears no tag was checked-in from Johannesburg and is identical to a similar bad carried by the prophet.

Bushiri, who has been released on a $100,000 bail would be assisting the New York police in investigating a 10Kg cocaine found on the baggage carousel.
