American rapper, singer and music executive, Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., is reportedly a passenger in a plane that is being searched in Miami by US Feds according to Miami Herald.
Lil Wayne’s personal private plane was detained by the agents of the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in a drug-related search following a tip-off that the rapper’s chartered flight may be carrying drugs.
According to reports by Miami Herald, he flew into Miami on Monday on a private jet that was stopped by federal agents at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport, according to three law enforcement sources.
According to the FBI source, the Agents received a report that the plane may have been used to move illegal drugs as at afternoon (American time). The agents, in order to effect a search of the plane, moved swiftly to obtain a search warrant from a federal judge in Miami.
Currently, there are no reports on whether the plane has been implicated in drug trafficking and neither has anyone been arrested or charged for drug offenses as at the time of filing this report.
According to Miami Herald, among the team carrying out the search are federal investigations, the FBI, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and several other agencies. The search is still ongoing as at Monday evening (US time) and Tuesday early morning at 12am (Nigerian time).
The Miami-Dade police officers are also reported to be part of the search team.
