Jailed British rapper got Uber driver friend to transport gun from London to Manchester

A 32-year-old rapper, who goes by the stage name J Avalanche, arranged for a gun to be transported from London to Manchester by an Uber driver friend.

J Avalanche, real name Nahkell Gordon, is said to have been a member of a notorious Tottenham gang called Wood Green Mob, and was sentenced to nine years for attempting to transport £200,000 worth of cocaine.

Following his conviction, it has now been revealed on Swindon Advertiser that a month before he arranged for a kilogramme of cocaine to be transported to London, he got an Uber driver pal to take a revolver and bullets from London to Manchester.

Gordon was sentenced to an additional seven-and-a-half years for arranging the transfer of the prohibited firearm.

Uber driver friend, Mike Kalu, was called to take the package containing the gun to Manchester. 

Kalu claimed he did not know he was transporting a firearm. 

He was stopped by police in a Tesco car park in Burnage, a suburb of Manchester, on 19 August, less than a month before he was said to have helped arrange the transfer of a kilogramme of cocaine to Swindon. 

In his defense, rapper Gordon, claimed he had purchased the firearm after being targeted in a drive-by shooting, but changed his mind about owning the weapon and was returning it to the seller - a claim dismissed as "utterly preposterous" by Judge Martin Steiger.
