“Dudus” Coke arrested

Jamaican druglord Christopher “Dudus” Coke has been captured in Jamaica and is now facing extradition to the United States, according to British Telegraph. Reports from Jamaica say that he was on his way to hand himself in when he was detained. Christopher Coke will now be extradited to the United States, where prosecutions are waiting for drug dealing and arms trafficking.

A long and deadly hunt is finally over. At least 73 people were killed during four days of fighting in May when police and soldiers stormed into the Tivoli Gardens in Kingston.

Christopher Coke is in many parts of Kingston seen as a hero and is, according to the Telegraph, hailed by many residents as a Robin Hood figure who offers security and small-time jobs on some of the world’s toughest streets.

Since the riots began in May some Jamaican artists has released pleas for peace, for example Anthony B with the tune Sweet Jamaica and Busy Signal’s Let Peace Reign.
