The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, has busted a drug cartel behind the production and distribution of deadly psychoactive substance, methamphetamine, popularly called ‘Mkpuru mmiri’.

Spokesman of the agency, Femi Babafemi said the successful operation followed the arrest of the leader of the syndicate, 42-year-old Joachin Chikaodi Mbonu and his associate in his mansion tucked in his Umuomi village, Uzogba-Ezenomi autonomous community, Ikeduru local government area of Imo State.

“The cartel with operational bases in Imo and Rivers state became a target of the Agency following intelligence indicating it is responsible for the distribution of substantial quantity of methamphetamine in South East, South South and other parts of the country.

“After weeks of surveillance, officers of a special operations unit of the Agency on Friday 5th July 2024, tracked and traced the drug lord to his village mansion in Imo state where he was caught with a member of his cartel, Kenneth Chibuike Ofoegbu, 34, with different quantities of methamphetamine, its precursor chemicals, a pump action gun and cartridges recovered.

“Exhibits recovered from the house include: 419.99 grams of methamphetamine; 750 grams of iodine, a precursor chemical for meth; 500 grams of sodium bicarbonate, a precursor chemical for meth; two electronic weighing scales and a pump action gun with four cartridges.

“The operatives moved swiftly to another of Mbonu’s hideout located at 11 Redemption Avenue, Port Harcourt, Rivers state where they recovered additional exhibits: 750 grams of processed sodium bicarbonate; 170 grams of plain sodium bicarbonate and 75 grams of meth.

“Another raid in the home of one of Mbonu’s associates, Odoemenam Pedro Chinedu, currently at large, at Njaba LGA, Imo state, led to the recovery of another pump action gun with 25 cartridges, among other items.

“While the kingpin cools his heels in custody, two of his mansions in Imo state have been marked for possible forfeiture to the federal government.

“Mbonu had escaped from South Africa where he lived for years and mastered the art of cooking methamphetamine after he came under investigation for drug dealings.

“Upon his return to Nigeria, he continued the criminal trade by setting up clandestine laboratories in remote villages to shield his nefarious activities”.

Reacting to the successful taking down of the meth syndicate, Chairman/Chief Executive of NDLEA, Brig Gen Mohamed Buba Marwa (Rtd) commended the officers and men involved in the multi-pronged operation.

He stated that the manner the interdiction was carried out should send a strong signal to other cartels that there’s no hiding place for them in any part of the country.

Prince Louis has a ‘two-year wait’ before following in Princess Charlotte’s footsteps

Published

Prince Louis was obviously absent from his siblings’ separate royal trips last week, and one expert revealed how long it will be until he can join them.

According to an expert, Prince Louis will have a “two-year wait” before he can follow in Princess Charlotte’s footsteps with exciting trips.

Princess Charlotte attended Wimbledon with the Princess of Wales last Sunday, and Prince George joined Prince William in Berlin for the Euros 2024 final that evening.

Cameron Walker, a royal specialist, discussed George and Charlotte’s trip last week with Svar Nanan-Sen on GB News’ The Royal Record Podcast.

Louis was absent from both trips, with the Prince and Princess of Wales’s youngest child most likely being cared for at home.

Regarding the six-year-old, Svar stated, “One royal child who was not at England’s Euro 2024 defeat or Wimbledon was Prince Louis.

Princess Charlotte went to Wimbledon last week with mum Princess Kate

“This has caused quite a stir online, with many calling for justice for Prince Louis. He’s still only six, we have to remember. READ FULL STORY HERE>>>CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING>>>

“Charlotte made her first appearance at Wimbledon when she was eight, so he’s got to wait a couple more years. But Kate did say last year when George and Charlotte went to Wimbledon without Louis, that he was very upset about it.”

Although fans were unable to see Louis at either event, the Prince and Princess of Wales used social media to tell what their baby son has been up to, sharing a cute photo of him and Charlotte.

Regarding the image of Charlotte and Louis wearing personalized football shirts, Mr Walker added: “We did get a lovely photograph taken by the Princess of Wales on the Sunday evening of when George and William were in Berlin for the Euros final, but what was lovely was seeing Prince Louis with his big sister, Princess Charlotte, and the Princess of Wales in their private grounds in Adelaide Cottage, we believe, and watching the England game.”

Kate and Charlotte were joined by her sister, Pippa Middleton, for last week’s Wimbledon Men’s Final.
