‘Lekki Drug Dealer’ Who Escaped After Crushing NDLEA Officer Declared Wanted (PHOTOS)

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, (NDLEA) has started a manhunt for Sowunmi Ayodeji Kayode, a reputed Lekki drug dealer who allegedly operates in the Lekki area of Lagos State.

He is now on the run after allegedly “driving his luxury car to crush an NDLEA officer in his bid to escape arrest” when agents were conducting a search of his home last weekend.

According to a statement made by the agency’s spokesperson, Femi Babafemi, anti-narcotics officers stormed the residence of the wanted Lekki drug dealer on Friday, August 18, at Number 2/3 Adetola Ayeni close in Lekki, Lagos, for a search and potential arrest after receiving reliable information that he was conducting illegal drug business there.

‘’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.”

However, according to Babafemi, a thorough search of his flat resulted in the recovery of 10.5 kilogrammes of Loud, while the operator who was knocked on the ground sustained many injuries to various parts of his body as well as a complex fracture to both of his two legs, for which he is presently being treated in a hospital.A

‘’Following the unpleasant development, Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of NDLEA, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd) has directed the deployment of appropriate operational assets of the Agency to smoke out the wanted suspect from his hiding. He also approved adequate medical care for the injured officer so that he can get back on his feet as soon as possible.” Babafemi said
