A Nigerian drug dealer who bragged about his criminal lifestyle in a music video he made has been jailed in the United Kingdom.
Adetokunbo Ajibola, was sentenced to a total of five years’ imprisonment at Harrow Crown Court on Friday, 1 March after admitting to possession of cocaine with intent to supply, possession of cannabis with intent to supply and possession of criminal property at a previous hearing.
Officers from Brent Gangs Unit executed a warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 at a multi-occupancy address in Sneyd Road, Willesden NW2 on 25 April.
As officers forced entry to the premises, Ajibola jumped from a second floor window and attempted to escape from officers. He was detained a short distance away on the roof of a garage and arrested.
The rooms at the address were searched. The second floor was described in court as a “drug preparation factory”. Officers found what was later confirmed as 241 grams of high-purity cocaine and mixing agents, along with nearly 60 grams of crack cocaine, and 240 grams of cannabis. The potential street value of the drugs was in excess of £30,000.
After being charged, he first appeared at Willesden Magistrates’ Court on 26 April 2018. He pleaded guilty to the offences at Harrow Crown Court on 27 June 2018.
