Known by the alias “La Negra”, he is said to have been responsible for laundering assets and making connections with international criminal organizations to ship cocaine.
Colombia on Friday extradited the sister of Nini Johanna Chuca David, alias “Odoniel,” a high-ranking leader of the Clan del Golfo, to face drug-trafficking charges in the United States.
Nini Johanna, 40, has been subpoenaed for a hearing in the US District Court for the Southern District of Florida. .
Known by the alias “La Negra,” he was allegedly responsible for laundering the assets of the Clan del Golfo and establishing links with international criminal organizations, according to Colombian authorities.
He was wanted and subsequently arrested in Colombia in March 2021 on an Interpol Red Notice, and has since been awaiting his extradition, which was approved by the Colombian Supreme Court in April 2022.
According to an extradition request sent from the United States to a Colombian court, Nini Johanna received direct orders from her brother, Deiro Antonio Chuca David, head of Los Urapeños, later known as the Clan del Golfo, which collected “taxes.” for the export of cocaine from the Gulf of Ureba in northwestern Colombia, bordering Panama.
A cooperating defendant who pleaded guilty to drug trafficking offenses in the United States told investigators that Nini Johanna controlled “Odoniel’s” savings and was responsible for purchasing properties in his name.
And “he derived all profits from cocaine exports and/or taxes paid on cocaine shipments.”
With “Otoniel”, the Clan del Golfo became the most powerful in Colombia, with more than 3,500 members and the ability to smuggle 20 tons of cocaine per month. It’s a family organization, and Colombian authorities have captured 17 of their relatives and killed three more.
Colombia’s most wanted drug trafficker “Odoniel” was extradited to the United States in May this year, where he pleaded not guilty to drug charges.
He was captured in October 2021 in the mountains in the northwest of the country, where he always carried out his criminal activities, in a military operation that stopped more than 500 people.
Along with Nini Johanna, six others were handed over on Friday in a US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) plane.
Among them are two former members of Colombia’s defunct Guerrilla Revolutionary Armed Forces (FARC), which failed to comply with a peace deal they signed with the state in 2016.
