At 5:20 a.m. today, members of the Mexican Secretariat of National Defense (Sedena) arrested Antonio Oseguera Cervantes, brother of Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, known as “El Mencho,” leader of the Jalisco Cartel – New Generation (CJNG).
According to preliminary information, Antonio Oseguera is in custody after his arrest and is being transferred. We have just published the list of the most important 8 CJNG-affiliated figures arrested in 2022. It seems that we have a 9th!
Several Mexican news outlets are reporting the news.
Since 2016, the brother of “El Mencho” was designated by the US Treasury Department as the head of the CJNG, which also includes “Los Cuinis,” headed by his brother-in-law, Abigael González Valencia.
