NDLEA Launches Manhunt For Drug Dealer For Crushing Operative

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), has launched a manhunt for a Lekki Lagos-based notorious drug dealer, Sowunmi Ayodeji Kayode, who is on the run after driving his luxury car to crush an NDLEA officer.

Kayode was running in his bid to escape arrest when operatives were on a search of his house last weekend.

NDLEA spokesperson, Femi Babafemi said: “The anti-narcotics officers of the agency had on Friday, August 18, stormed the residence of the wanted drug dealer located at 2/3 Adetola Ayeni close, Lekki, Lagos for a search and possible arrest following credible intelligence that he was dealing in illicit drugs in his house.

“Although he was not in the house when operatives got into his compound, he however returned while a search of his apartment was ongoing.

In a dramatic twist, as soon as he drove into the premises and sighted NDLEA officers, he engaged his car in reverse gear, knocked down one of the officers, pulled down his gate before plunging the vehicle into the fence of the opposite compound.

The force of his car’s speed also pulled down the concrete wall of his neighbour’s compound and from there he dived out of the vehicle to escape,” he said.
