Anti-drug operatives take battle to baroness’ multi-million naira manson

Sunday May 15, 2022 was a black day for a suspected drug baroness alleged to be the queen of a major drug cartel in Delta and other crude oil states of the federation.

She is Bridget Oghenekevwe. She is 59 years old, popularly known and addressed as ‘Mama’.

It took a team of enthusiastic operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA weeks of sustained surveillance to burst her expansive mansion where she allegedly cooks and distributes what is called Crack Cocaine, Methamphetamine and other illicit substances.

Relying on Director, Media and Advocacy of the NDLEA, Mr Femi Babafemi, nine suspects were also arrested along with Mama inside the residence which has facilities such as “drug bunks where she accommodates drug users and sells illicit substances.”

Babafemi explained, “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 that 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.”
