Abuja | CELEBRITY couple Igho ‘Tiny’ Ubiribo and Daniella Adams are on the run for allegedly leading a drugs cartel in Nigeria.
The two people of interest had a lavish wedding at “The Nest at Thirty” in Helensvale in Harare last year and they painted the town green and it was graced by socialites and ladies about town.
Award winning superstar Davido was also in attendance since he is Tiny’s childhood friend.
The mother of all weddings caused a social media debate where local socialites like Mike Chimombe were said to have been relegated to “ice boys” by the Nigerian entourage who flew in a private jet.
The metre-tall cake was baked by Mrs Michaels brand and the local socialites sat at the periphery of the venue and were forced to dress in green apparel.
“Being send to buy ice during a drinking binge is great humiliation tantamount to holding underwear when your friend is being intimate with his lover.”
“It reminds me of how Russel Goreraza is being treated by his clique,” said a socialite who preffered anonymity.
ZiMetro News understands the drugs were seized on March 31 in Abuja.
According to Nigeria Drug Law Enforcement Agency, the drugs were hidden in a tomatoes market.
After being quizzed by authorities, the couple hurriedly moved all funds traced to their company Lasgidi Backwood Ltd where all sales of the illicit drugs were transferred to a private account under one Victor Imagoro.
The Agency blocked a sum of Eighty million Naira.
“The Agency has since blocked 80 million naira and obtained a court order to seize all properties including a fuel station linked to the suspects in Lagos and Port Harcourt,” read part of the statement released by the Nigerian drugs busting agency.
The Agency further sought and obtained an order of the Federal High Court to declare the celebrity couple wanted.
Investigations established that the couple is the arrowheads of the illicit drug dealings and a prophetess named Faith Ugochi was also implicated and said to recruit teenage girls to move and sale the drugs.
The drugs included cannabis, opioid pills, coke which were concealed in cartons of sweets and ,hair cream, shampoo and hair rollers.
A company called Ben Cargo Freight company was allegedly responsible for shipment of the illicit consignments .
As for now ,Davido is in the clear with speculative reports suggesting that he might be involved in the cartel basing on his close relationship with Tiny.
Meanwhile, at one time Daniella used to stay at the late Genius Kadungure’s mansion and is close friends to Nyasha Mushekwi’s ex wife Luminista Kimberly Jemwa who once got a US$60 000 worth of Mercedes Benz from her ex-boyfriend Russell Goreraza who is believed to be bankrupt after his mother Grace Mugabe blocked funds and grounded him after massive abuse of same.
