Two Nigerian brothers identified as Kenechi and Oluchi Ochereobia have been arrested by police in the United Kingdom for flaunting massive cash, expensive jewellries, wrist watches and cars.
NAIJ.com gathered that the brothers were arrested over their alleged involvement in drug deals. Pictures of the brothers showing off the huge amount of money they had were seen by the police who did not slack in picking them up.
Kenechi and Oluchi along with some other members of a drug dealing gang have been picked and would be spending a long time in jail as a result of their activities. The two Nigerian brothers were said to have been in control of a network of drug distributors.
In the course of the investigation, police found pictures of Kenechi posing with some money he was said to have gotten from the proceedings of a drug deal.
Kenechi who lives in Foster Drive in Cardiff tried getting himself out of the mess by saying he was involved in a legit business which entails the distribution of clothes. However, there was no evidence to back this up as the amount of cash he was seen flaunting could not have been made from his supposed business.
According to reports, Kenechi controlled the business using a mobile phone with which their buyers were contacted and notified when they had supplies. Afterwards, they would give orders to the thugs working for them and send out the younger members of the gang to supply their customers in Norwich.
Following their arrest, police seized thousands of pounds from them. Kenechi and his brother were arrested after £23,000, an equivalent of N9.4m was found in his apartment in Cardiff. Four other men actively involved in the deal were arrested by the police after they got wind of their trading in hard drugs and substances.
Elliot Murawski and Frankie Dos Santos were picked up by the police after they discovered £6, 000 an equivalent of N2.4m in an oven sometimes in June. Murawski who lives on Riverside Road in Norwich was arrested again after police found another £3, 000, an equivalent of N1.2m worth of crack cocaine and heroin.
The other members were also found with huge amount of cash. The police picked the members up at different locations while they were in possession of various incriminating materials.
NAIJ.com gathered that the six members of the gang have all being charged with two counts of conspiracy to supply class A drugs. All the members will be sentenced on May 26.
Detective Sergeant Paul Harris of Met’s Trident and Area Crime Command confirmed the report. He expressed his gratitude to all the officers who helped nab the members of the gang.
