PHOTOS: EFCC nabs drug baron who fled to Nigeria from South Africa

A suspected drug baron, Joachin Chikaodi Mbonu, who had been on the wanted list of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, has been arrested.

Mbonu was arrested by operatives of the NDLEA in his village mansion in Imo State on July 5.

A statement on Tuesday by the agency’s spokesperson, Femi Babafemi, said Mbonu was arrested along with one of his associates, Kenneth Chibuike Ofoegbu.

EFCC alleged that Mbonu belongs to a drug cartel behind the production of methamphetamine, and that he fled South Africa when the authorities were planning to swoop in on him.
