NDLEA Lagos Declares Drug Baron Wanted

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has declared Alhaji Ademola Afolabi Kazeem (a.k.a Alhaji Abdallah Kazeem Muhammed), a Lagos socialite and owner of Adekaz Hotels, wanted for offences bordering on exportation and trafficking of illicit drugs as well as money laundering.

Following the suspect’s failure to respond to the NDLEA’s invitations and an order given to the organisation by a Federal High Court in Lagos on Monday, October 17, 2022, the agency made the decision to issue a wanted declaration for the suspect.

While speaking in Abuja on Tuesday 1st October 2022, Femi Babafemi, the spokesman for the agency said that the wanted drug kingpin was uncovered as the sponsor of some traffickers arrested by the anti-narcotics agency in their recent attempt to export cocaine to Dubai, United Arab Emirate and other destinations outside Nigeria.

“Soon after the arrest of one of his mules, Bolujoko Muyiwa Babalola, a Lagos BRT driver, on 27th June at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Ikeja, Alhaji Ademola Kazeem who is also the Chairman of Adekaz Global Integrated Services, went underground.”

“Following his failure to honour invitations sent to him, the agency approached a Federal High Court in Lagos with three prayers: to attach and seal his identified properties in Lagos and Ibadan; declare him wanted and block his bank account with a cash balance of N217m all of which were granted,” Babafemi said.

According to him, as a result, NDLEA operatives on Wednesday, October 26, 2022, sealed six of the identified properties located on Lagos Island, including 105 Tokunbo street off Broad Street, Lagos Island; 1 Abibu Oki street off Marina, Lagos Island; 3 Abibu Oki street off Marina, Lagos Island; 54 Palm Church street, Lagos Island; 26 Agarawu street, Lagos Island; and 41 Foresythe street, Lagos Island.

The other one is located at 1 Irepodun Zone, Adepoju bus stop, Ajoda Ayedun, Ibadan, Oyo State.
