The group, who sold Class A drugs to party-goers in the smoking area outside nightclubs, were targeted in a police operation throughout last summer.
Amine Sugule, Abdi Rahman Shireh, Abdi Yusuf, all 20, were
sentenced alongside 19-year-olds Mohammed Jama and Usaama Ahmed at
Snaresbrook Crown Court last week.
Det Insp John Cracknell said:
“This investigation is an excellent example of the impact the police can
have on organised criminal groups when different departments and other
stakeholders work in partnership.
“The operation was borne out of
intelligence gathered by Tower Hamlets borough. However it was led by
the London Crime Squad, which gathered overwhelming evidence that led to
all the subjects pleading guilty at the earliest opportunity.”
