PHOTOS: NDLEA Intercepts 5,344kg Skunk In Lagos

Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency said it has intercepted two imported consignments of loud, a strong strain of cannabis, with a combined weight of 5,344.1 kilograms along the Epe-Lekki corridor and at the Alfa beach, Lekki area of Lagos state.

The Agency made this known in a statement posted on its Facebook page on Sunday and signed by its Director, Media and Advocacy, Femi Babafemi.

The statement in part said, “Based on credible intelligence, NDLEA operatives laid ambush for a white truck conveying 50 jumbo bags of the illicit substance weighing 2, 434.1kg along the Epe-Lekki expressway in the early hours of Monday 19th June.

The truck driver, however, jumped out of the vehicle and escaped in a security Hilux van escorting the truck, after the anti-narcotics officers successfully demobilised the truck conveying the drug exhibits.

“In the same vein, officers of the Marine Command of the Agency the following day, Tuesday 20th also acting on intelligence intercepted a boat loaded with the same imported substance weighing 2,910kg around Alfa Beach upon arrival from Ghana. Two Ghanaians: Monday Saba, 30, and Hakeem Kwana, 27, found with the consignments were promptly arrested.”
