A Lagos socialite and proprietor of Adekaz Hotels, Ademola Afolabi Kazeem has been declared wanted by National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) for alleged involvement in drug trafficking and money laundering.
Kazeem also known as Alhaji Abdallah Kazeem Muhammed failed to honour several invitations by the NDLEA after a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos on October 17, granted the order for him to appear.
NDLEA spokesman, Femi Babafemi, said on Tuesday in Abuja 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.
