The Central Crime Branch (CCB), on Tuesday, busted a major drug racket and arrested an alleged kingpin of cocaine trade in Bengaluru.
The accused, identified as Chidiebere Ambrose, is often referred to as ‘Chief’ among the drug peddlers of Bengaluru.
Sandeep Patil, the Joint Commissioner of Police, Crime, Bengaluru City Police, who confirmed the arrest in a statement on Tuesday, December 15, said drug peddlers had revealed that they used to buy cocaine from Chief.
“The main kingpin in cocaine supply in Bengaluru has been arrested by CCB. He is called chief. His real name is Chidiebere Ambrose,” Patil said.
All the Nigerian drug peddlers were in touch with him to purchase cocaine from him. In all previous drug cases, we found that all the Nigerian drug peddlers bought cocaine from a person named chief. After detailed investigation, this chief has been arrested,” the official added.
The Bengaluru Police had been tracking Chief for about a month following a detailed investigation.
The officials of the Narcotics wing of the CCB are investigating further to uncover the wider network.
Police have earlier launched a crackdown against the drug haul in Bengaluru and arrested many high profile people including Kannada film actresses and children of politicians who used to take drugs, indulged in drug peddling and organized rave parties.
EWR NOTE- I’m learning even new logic here – from glorifying druggies and defending them to logic about “pic” to avoid offending family members. It’ll be very interesting to hold an international conference with all the law enforcement agencies globally just to inform them that criminals’ family members feel “offended” by their “pic” they use, therefore, they must stop. Moral decadence in Nigeria is at all times high that druggies, yahoo boys and many more are getting more romanticized by the day, leading to more efulefus putting their lives in danger as they choose criminal careers in order to please their criminally-minded fans.
