Manhunt for EL drug kingpin

HAVE YOU SEEN THIS MAN: Suspected drug kingpin James Ifenatuora is on the run

East London’S suspected drug kingpin, James Ifenatuora, 45, is on the run. He was last seen in an East London courtroom successfully pleading for bail of R200 000, but he has skipped bail, it was heard in court recently.
