Two accused Blessed king Ibu (35) and Marokolotso Mohadi (33) are expected to re-appear in the Potchefstroom Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, 10 March 2022, for possession of and dealing in drugs. They made their first appearance before the same court on Friday, 04 March 2022.
The pair was arrested by Potchefstroom Flying Squad Unit members on Thursday, 03 March 2022, on the N12 road.
Lieutenant Colonel Amanda Funani of North West Police said the members were doing routine crime prevention patrols on the N12 when they spotted a suspicious grey Volkswagen Polo vehicle driven recklessly from Johannesburg to Potchefstroom direction.
“They tried to stop the vehicle, but the driver accelerated and skipped red robots. The police chased the said vehicle until it was cornered near a filling station on the N12.”
Funani added that the vehicle was searched and the police found plastic bags containing lots of mandrax tablets with an estimated street value of R175 000.00, which Ibu and Mohadi could not account for. Investigation into the matter continues.
