A popular Nigerian rapper has been jailed for five years in the U.K.
Naija News reports that the 26-year old rapper identified simply as Adetokunbo Ajibola after facing trial and he admitted to the possession of cocaine with intent to supply, possession of cannabis with intent to supply and possession of criminal property at a previous hearing.
As security officers forced entry to his premises, Ajibola was reported to have jumped from a second-floor window and attempted to escape from officers before he was nabbed by the intelligence of the corp.
The second floor of his house was described in court as a “drug preparation factory.”
Reports reaching this News platform suggests that 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.
In Ajibola’s first-floor bedroom, officers found £13,000 in cash, a custom gold pendant and chain valued at around £15,000, and high-value clothing valued at more than £10,000. All of these items were seized.
Ajibola is a popular rapper who goes by the stage name Trapstar Toxic. A music video for a song called “Out Ere” that makes explicit references to drug dealing was introduced in prosecution evidence and shown to the court.
