British TikTok sensation Modou Adams, 25, known online as @boywholives, has been sentenced to six years and eight months in prison by a Peruvian court.
Adams was apprehended at the Jorge Chavez International Airport on 30 September, where authorities discovered 2.9kg of cocaine concealed inside a suitcase he was carrying. The suitcase was originally destined for Paris but was rerouted to London, where the drugs, valued at £300,000, were intercepted.
Adams, a popular online influencer, pleaded guilty to the drug trafficking charge. As part of his sentence, he was fined approximately £1,500. Peru’s Supreme Court, emphasizing the severity of the offense, released an edited image of Adams behind bars on social media after the sentencing.
The arrest sent shockwaves through the online community, as Adams had amassed a significant following on TikTok, where he shared his adventures and experiences with his fans. Just weeks before his arrest, Adams posted pictures of himself exploring the iconic Machu Picchu, a UNESCO World Heritage site located in the Andes Mountains, showcasing a stark contrast to his current situation.
The news has raised concerns about the use of social media platforms by individuals involved in illegal activities, prompting discussions about the responsibility of influencers and the potential consequences of their actions. As this story unfolds, it serves as a reminder of the challenges faced by law enforcement agencies worldwide in combating drug trafficking and related crimes facilitated by global travel networks.
The legal proceedings have concluded, leaving Adams facing a significant prison term and his online followers in disbelief, grappling with the fall from grace of a once-beloved social media personality.
