The defendant was a participant in a WhatsApp group through which the delivery of customer orders for class A (cocaine and MDMA) and Class B drugs (ketamine and cannabis) was arranged. The defendant maintained he was a cannabis runner and no more. He pleaded to a single count reflecting this.  After several days of deliberation, and in relation to this defendant only, the jury returned unanimous NG verdicts on all other conspiracy counts and one count alleging possession of criminal property.

Instructed by Osondu from Malcolm & Co Solicitors
