Successful raid by the airport anti-drug squad on an apartment in Grand-Baie La Croisette where Kamal Olwale Dosonmu, a 31-year-old Nigerian national, lives. The latter was arrested when he got off the plane on Friday with several cannabis seeds, equipment suspected of being used in the indoor cultivation of this drug as well as chemical substances.

On Saturday, a search was carried out in the apartment occupied by this Nigerian national who holds a residence permit in Mauritius until March 2033. During this operation, investigators led by Chief Inspector Goinden discovered a quantity of cannabis in a bag. Six buckets filled with soil containing cannabis stems were also secured in apartment D202 in Grand-Baie La Croisette. Equipment used in growing cannabis plants was also found.

Since his arrest on Friday upon his arrival in Plaisance, this Nigerian national, a “Data Scientist” by profession, is suspected of being a strong link in cannabis trafficking within a “Nigerian Connection” in Mauritius.

On the evening of Friday June 21, shortly after 8 p.m., he arrived from Johannesburg, South Africa. He was in the company of his friend, a man named Nathaniel Imuetinyanosa Omoruyi, established in Nigeria. The latter had brought back in his luggage a quantity of herbal cannabis, tablets suspected of being ecstasy, and 934 books of tobacco paper. The two Nigerians were immediately taken into police custody. On Saturday, they were provisionally charged with drug importation before the Week End Court and will be brought before the Mahébourg court again this Monday. Kamal Olwale Dosonmu will also be the subject of a provisional charge of “drug trafficking” before the Rivière-du-Rempart court after the seizure of a quantity of cannabis in the apartment he rents.

This week, these two suspects will be questioned by the anti-drug squad on the presence of these herbs, cannabis seeds, among others, which were seized in their possession. The police also want to know if the installation of Kamal Olwale Dosonmu on Mauritian soil is linked to cannabis cultivation activities. Adsu is also interested in the presence of chemical solutions, in particular “Potassium Hydroxide and Potassium Carbonate: Easy Hydro Grow Base” and “Phosphoric Acid and Nitric Acid: Easy Hydro Grow” in his luggage.

Investigators strongly suspect that these substances would be used in the “indoor” cultivation of cannabis plants. The substances and drugs seized have already been sealed. They will be sent to the Forensic Science Laboratory in Réduit this week for analysis.
