A man from Hainault was one of 22 people sentenced for drug offences following a series of dawn raids across east London last year.

Mansour Hussain, 30 of New North Road, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess cocaine with intent to supply.

Some 19 men and three women were arrested by officers from Trident, following an intelligence-led operation, codenamed Operation Nieuport, which targeted violent offenders and gang activity in east London.

During the course of the raids, drugs were seized, along with cash, mobile phone handsets, a handgun, a Samurai sword, three machetes and a can of pepper spray.

Between them, the 22 individuals ran a total of nine drugs lines, used by drug users in the Waltham Forest area.

The majority of the defendants pleaded guilty and were sentenced on dates between October 2018 and March 2019.

Hussain was sentenced to two years and four months’ imprisonment at Snaresbrook Crown Court.

The last men to be tried were Aaron Nicholas-Wilks, 27 of Acacia Road, Waltham Forest, and Tre Fraser, 25, of no fixed abode.

They both pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supply crack cocaine and heroin and were sentenced on Monday, April, 1 to seven years’ imprisonment and two years and four months’ imprisonment respectively.

Officer in the case, Det Con Paul Terrey of Trident, said: “The sentencing of Nicholas-Wilks and Fraser is the culmination of months of hard work by officers from across the Met.

“This has led to 22 dangerous individuals being removed from the streets of east London and is a fantastic result which I hope demonstrates our ongoing commitment to tackling the scourge of drug dealing, the associated violence and anti-social behaviour which plagues local communities in certain areas.”
