A 19-YEAR-OLD drug dealer has been jailed for four years.

Crack-cocaine dealer Michael Okadigbo was spotted in Cambridge Drive, Ipswich by police as he threw a match box to the ground. It contained seven wraps of crack-cocaine and five wraps of heroin valued at £190.

Okadigbo, of Westbourne Road, Holloway, also had £230 in cash on him.

At Ipswich Crown Court he pleaded guilty to two charges of possessing Class A drugs with intent to supply.

The court heard that when Okadigbo was young his father died but he had passed his GCSEs at A and B levels and his mother was “very upstanding.”

Judge David Goodin said: “There is a growing concern about the frequency of young black males coming from London to push this stuff around this town.

“You know that dealing Class A drugs is dealt with seriously because of the consequences of dependency, which leads to burglaries and stealing to feed habits.”

Okadigbo was sentenced to four years detention and training in a young offender's institution.
