Following intelligence reports of a suspect distributing narcotics around Alexander Street in Berea, a team from the Hawks’ Serious Organised Crime Investigation and the Tactical Response Team (TRT) conducted surveillance and apprehended Nworji.

His silver Honda was intercepted as he was leaving the Plumridge flats, leading to the discovery of various drugs during the search.

Subsequent searches at his residence uncovered additional narcotics and a stash of money and coins. The seized drugs, identified as crystal meth, Mandrax, and heroin, have an estimated value of over one million rand.

The case has been adjourned to Thursday, 30 May 2024, pending verification of Nworji’s status in the country and to allow for further investigation.
