DC Carven Morgan from Brent Police’s Wanted Offender Unit said: “The damage to London’s communities and public confidence in the criminal justice system is exacerbated by the fact that drug dealers are often alluring role models, with apparently glamorous lifestyles and a propensity for violence, for vulnerable youths.
“Many Londoners perceive such individuals as ‘above the law’ – they are not.
“Brent Police are committed to total policing and the detention and removal of Valentine Onyeabor is one small victory in our total war on crime.”
