A 48-year-old accused abandoned his bail application and a warrant for his arrest was issued.

Peter Aji Ekemah was arrested by Piet Retief Station Commander and his team during an intelligence driven operation for dealing in drugs on 9 June 2023.

The accused was found with methamphetamine, meth cathinone and cocaine in his possession with an estimated street value of R400 000-00.

The accused appeared in the Piet Retief Magistrates’ Court on 23 June 2023 for formal bail application and his application was abandoned as it was discovered that he was linked with five more incidents of dealing in drugs offences under investigation by the Secunda based Organised Crime Investigation.

His case was postponed to 5 July 2024.
