With an undisclosed identity, the alleged drug dealer is part of a network, with an undetermined number of members.

Speaking to ANGOP last Sunday, the director of the Interior Ministry's Institutional and Press Office, Commissioner Waldemar José, revealed that the "Drug Baron" was coordinating a network for the use and distribution of narcotics, with emphasis on cocaine.

“Investigations are currently underway for the dismantling of the entire network. We cannot, at this time, specify the quantities and the actions, to avoid disturbing the investigation process”, he underlined.

The police officer assured that in the coming days the group will be publicly presented.

It is recalled that three alleged international cocaine traffickers of different nationalities were arrested last Friday and Saturday at Luanda's 4 de Fevereiro International Airport, with eight kilos of drug.
