Nigerian drug dealing brothers who flaunted flashy things, face jail after police saw photos
A gang of six large-scale drug dealers who posed with huge amounts of cash, flash watches and cars are facing jail after police saw the pictures. Two brothers, Kenechi and Oluchi Ochereobia, ran a network of drugs couriers from their bases in Hackney and Cardiff.
During their investigation, officers found several pictures of Kenechi posing with thousands of pounds worth of cash – proceeds of his drug dealing. When questioned Kenechi, of Foster Drive, Cardiff, tried to make out he was running a legitimate clothes distribution business.
But police said he was unable to provide any evidence to show the business would account for the amount of cash he was seen to be posed with. Kenechi controlled the operation through a mobile phone, which he and his brother used to contact hundreds of people when they had supplies.
From this, the pair of thugs would receive orders, and then they would send younger gang members to supply drug users in Norwich. Kenechi hired cars and travelled between the three locations to oversee the large-scale operation.
He and his brother, of Mandeville Street, Hackney, were arrested after police found about £23,000 hidden in his Cardiff home. Four other men were also arrested. They are: Elliot Murawski, Frankie Dos Santos, Calvyn Green and Jaivon Prince.
Jaivon Prince, 20, from Daubney Road in Hackney, previously admitted charges on March 17 to possession with intent to supply and conspiracy to supply. Murawski, 26, from Norwich, pleaded guilty on November 17 to conspiracy to supply. All six are being sentenced at Blackfriars on May 26.
