The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has launched a manhunt for a Lekki axis, Lagos-based notorious drug dealer, Sowunmi Ayodeji Kayode, who is now on the run after driving his luxury car to crush an NDLEA officer.

Spokesman of the NDLEA, Femi Babafemi, said on Tuesday in a statement that the incident happened when the wanted suspect was trying to escape arrest when operatives were on a search of his house last weekend.

“Anti-narcotics officers of the agency had on 18th August stormed the residence of the wanted drug dealer located at 2/3 Adetola Ayeni Close, Lekki, Lagos for a search and possible arrest following credible intelligence that he was dealing in illicit drugs in his house.

“Although he was not in the house when operatives got into his compound, he returned while a search of his apartment was ongoing.

“In a dramatic twist, as soon as he drove into the premises and sighted NDLEA officers, he engaged his car in reverse gear, knocked down one of the officers, pulled down his gate before plunging the vehicle into the fence of the opposite compound.

“The force of his car’s speed also pulled down the concrete wall of his neighbour’s compound and from there he dived out of the vehicle to escape,” Babafemi said.

He said a thorough search of his apartment however led to the recovery of 10.5kgs of Loud, while the operative knocked down suffered multiple injuries all over his body and compound fracture on his two legs, for which he is currently on hospital admission for treatment.

Following the unpleasant development, Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of NDLEA, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (rtd) has directed the deployment of appropriate operational assets of the agency to smoke out the wanted suspect from his hiding.

He also approved adequate medical care for the injured officer so that he can get back on his feet as soon as possible.
