Following a joint operation between police and Border Force officers, three men have been jailed for a total of 40 years for plotting to import drugs and guns into the UK through the Eurotunnel. After a car seized in France in August 2017 was found to contain two loaded firearms, ammunition, a sound moderator and 990g of high purity cocaine, Michael Mgbedike and Kennedy Udo were arrested at the scene. Officers arrested Emmanuel Okubote and an unnamed woman early the next morning and charged them with firearms offences. Subsequently, Okubote’s fingerprints were found on a carrier bag that contained a loaded firearm recovered from an address in Forest Hill, South East London in January 2018 and on a bag containing a firearm recovered from a vehicle in North London. In addition, his DNA was retrieved from one of the guns. The three men had made several trips to Amsterdam during the months of July and August 2017 and police believe they imported prohibited firearms and drugs on at least three occasions. In November last year, Okubote was sentenced to 23-and-a-half years in prison after being found guilty of conspiracy to supply firearms with intent to endanger life, conspiracy to possess ammunition with intent to endanger life, conspiracy to supply class A drugs and possessing ammunition with intent to endanger life. This month, Udo was jailed for eight-and-a-half years on being found guilty of conspiracy to supply drugs and being knowingly concerned in the fraudulent evasion of a prohibition on the importation of goods. Mgbedike was sentenced to eight years after being found guilty of conspiracy to supply class A drugs.
