(CMC) – The arrest of a 75-year-old grandmother on drug related charges is resulting in people hilariously trolling police and calling for her release.
The woman had been arrested on Tuesday after police raided her home and found that she was running a small “cocaine empire” from her house in the western Paramaribo.
The arrest of coke Nani (granny) Nankoemarie N. has become such a hot topic in the country that the hashtag #FreeGazaNani has been trending all day Wednesday.
Prior to the arrest of the woman, police had caught a group of teenagers selling crack cocaine in Piano Street in Victoria Park, a neighbourhood in Kwatta, in western Paramaribo. The boys, ages ranging from 15 to 20 years told police that they were selling the narcotics for a woman with one of them identifying her as his aunt.
When police raided the house, they did indeed find a large amount of cocaine inside. They also found proof that the boys were selling the drugs at her behest. The grandma was immediately arrested. The boys were also kept in custody.
The case took an unexpected turn however, when people nicknamed the woman Gaza Nani — a play on the Gaza Strip’s terrorism reputation and the woman being as tough as a terrorist — and started calling for her release.https://www.stlucianewsonline.com/75-ye ... -suriname/
