KWAM 1’s Biggest Fan, RAFIU ELELE Caught At Last *How The Fugitive Drug-lord Escaped From America, Canada, S'Africa

According to what First Weekly Magazine reported, the cookie has finally crumbled as the chicken has finally come home to roost for top socialite and merry-go-happy guy, Rafiu Elele as the curtain has finally been drawn on his drug trade by the Interpol.

Reports reaching us indicated that Rafiu a.k.a Elele, who is a popular and undisputed heavyweight of the illicit drug, was extradited to the United States of America for trial recently.

Rafiu Elele, who has for long been on the wanted list of the Interpol, was followed, hunted and pursued also by the U.S law enforcement agents for years.

On several occasions, the top socialite, who is a close associate of a leading Fuji Lord, King Wasiu Ayinde a.k.a K1 De Ultimate, came within seconds of being nabbed by the drug law agents in Chicago, but managed to escape in a near miraculous ways that made residents of Chicago in the United States conclude that he may actually possess African traditional powers; “voodoo” and “charms.”

A clear case of his near invisibility was on one afternoon in Chicago, the U.S policemen, acting on reliable surveillance evidence, followed Elele to Kato African Restaurant located on North Clark Street and Touhy Avenue.

It was a done deal, they thought, but after having surrounded the restaurant, they entered the restaurant, ordered every patron at the restaurant to remain inside, with the entire door shut, they combed the entire building for Elele without success and had to leave without making the arrest.

Reports said that Elele, the fox had infact left the restaurant few minutes before the drug enforcement agents could get their acts together during the final phase of taking positions at the restaurant.

Other accounts of the incident maintained that Rafiu was actually cornered in the restaurant but disappeared through some magical power.

Elele is a well-liked drug fugitive within the Nigerian community in Chicago either because of his humility and respect for others, especially those older than him in age or his general disposition towards people in need.

He was reported to have sneaked out of the United States into Canada over eight years ago, when the heat became unbearable through the relentless determination of the U.S agents to arrest him.

In Canada, a country, whose drug laws is still evolving; Elele saw a more accommodating environment for his activities and within a short period has risen quickly as the ultimate brain behind illicit drug trafficking into and out of Canada.

While running his trade in Canada, he lived in Brampton, Toronto, reports had it that, Asylum seekers facilities in Canada became his major channel in his trade.

The Canadian authorities later learnt about Rafiu's alleged drug activities and a plan was hatched to get him arrested.

A source in Toronto told us that once the Canadian police got a very reliable hint that he was hiding in the basement of a house, the information turned out to be true, the place was surrounded just like it happened in Chicago, so it was in Toronto, Elele was several miles ahead.

He was reportedly moved from Toronto and driven in the trunk of a car for several hours to Montreal as the security officers at Pearson Airport; Toronto were keeping a vigil for him. It was from Montreal Airport that he made his escape from Canada.

Rather than live a quiet life and under the radar, we learnt that Elele relocated his stock in trade and his skill to South Africa after a brief stay in Lagos.

In South Africa, we learnt that Elele, who is haunted now by three countries (the U.S, Canada and South Africa) for alleged drug related offences and money laundering, finally got the attention of the Interpol as a person, who must be brought to book.

The Interpol finally succeeded in arresting him in Lagos and extraditing him to the U.S as the first country to try him before he is released to other countries also for trial.

He is currently somewhere in Washington DC jail awaiting trial accordingly to source.

Close friends of Elele are however, trying to make a strong case for him that people are just trying to give a dog a bad name just to hang it; they reasoned that Rafiu is a gentle and responsible socialite, married to a woman from a very prominent family in Lagos.

“They are all lies, he will be freed, we are waiting for the so-called trial to start, people who carried drugs on their own to make money, but got caught are now saying he owns their stuff. That is the style of Nigerians here in America, once someone is out of the radar and anything happens, the person is ultimately sacrificed,” said a source.
