NewsReport gathered that on Sunday, May 15th, operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, arrested a wanted 59-year-old drug baroness, Bridget Oghenekevwe Emeka, a.k.a. Mama, at her palatial mansion where she cooks and distributes crack cocaine, methamphetamine, and other illicit substances, breaking the backbone of a major cartel distributing drugs in Delta and neighbouring states.
In coordinated simultaneous operations at her spacious mansion and drug bunks, where she hosts drug users and sells illicit substances to them and others in portions of Warri, Delta state, nine of her workers and allies were detained with her.
Apart from various quantities of Crack Cocaine, Methamphetamine, Molly, and Loud seized from her home and drug bunks, a pump action gun, 15 cartridges, documents, two cars, mobile phones, drug paraphernalia such as sodium bicarbonate, and polythene wrappings were also recovered for further investigation.
While five of her staff who cook, cut, package and distribute the drugs were found in her house located at Favour Street, Otukutu, Effurun Warri, four of her associates were equally arrested at her drug bunks in other parts of the town during the raids by Strike Force officers of NDLEA supported by the military.
The drug baroness has been under surveillance for weeks after her identification as a major distributor of illicit drugs in the South South state. Bridget cooks cocaine into crack cocaine for local distribution and consumption in drug joints.
Sodium bicarbonate, the main adulterant and recipe for making crack cocaine, as well as transparent nylon used to wrap the finished product, were among the paraphernalia recovered from her home.
The Chairman/Chief Executive of NDLEA, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd), commended the officers and men involved in all the processes leading to the eventual execution of the operation plan. He also appreciated the armed forces for their unwavering support for the agency.
