Kingsley Nnedike (46), Emeka Ezissi (54) Mehran Mehran (38), and Muhammad Dura (51), were remanded in custody after they were arrested in a sting operation by the Hawks’ South African Narcotics Enforcement Bureau (SANEB), US’s Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Crime Intelligence last week Thursday in Gauteng and North West provinces respectively.
The meticulously planned sting operation that was aimed at disrupting the lethal global narcotics trade took place in the Modderfontein and Buffelshoek policing precincts respectively and netted four foreign nationals.
The group is believed to have been involved in a transnational drug enterprise in the USA, Mozambique and the Republic of South Africa. They have been on the radar of the authorities for a while. They have since been charged in terms of dealing in narcotics in terms of the drug trafficking Act – 140/1992.
Sixty (60) kg of Chrystal Meth with a street value of approximately R7million was recovered from the syndicate.
The four remains in custody and are expected to make a follow-up appearance in the Potchefstroom Magistrate’s Court on 10 January 2022 for formal bail application.
