A Nigerian man will now spend six years in a prison in the United Kingdom after he was found guilty by a court for possession of 79 wraps of cocaine.
The Nigerian drug dealer, identified as Lekan Awosika has been sentenced to six and a half years in prison after police found 79 wraps of class A drugs hidden under a bath in Chelmsford, Essex.
The 25-year old dealer of Central Park Road, East Ham, was sentenced at Chelmsford Crown Court on November 27, 2015 after he was found guilty of possession with intent to supply crack cocaine and heroin.
Awosika was arrested on March 25 this year by officers from Operation Saturn, a team formed in 2014 to tackle gang related violence and drug crime.
He was taken into custody after officers noticed the bath panel at a property on Victoria Crescent, had been tampered with and discovered 34 wraps of crack cocaine and 45 of heroin hidden in a plastic bag behind it.
Awosika was also found to be carrying two mobile phones and more than £300 in cash.
