Alleged drug smuggler, Evy Ezeagbai, is out on bail.

The Nigerian national was granted bail of R30 000 by the Modimolle Regional Court on Thursday, 9 November.

The 49-year-old suspect was held in custody at the Kgosi Mampuru II Prison in Pretoria for allegedly being in posession of 4.6Kg of CAT in July.

At the time SAPS Limpopo provincial spokesperson, Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo, had disclosed that the Hawks, following up on a tip-off, stopped the suspect’s vehicle which was allegedly transporting drugs at Bela-Bela.

The street value of the drugs was estimated at R1.3 million, Mojapelo had said.

Meanwhile, the trial of alleged drug dealer, the Zimbabwean national, Daniel Maparangwa (28), continued with testimony from witnesses on Wednesday, 13 September.

The charges brought against him are from several drug-related charges emanating from cases which took place between June and September last year. 

Maparangwa is on bail of R5000, and was expected to appear before the Bela-Bela Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday, 17 October where the case was once again moved to Monday, 27 November.
