NDLEA uncovers warehouse loaded with cannabis in Kwara

Date: 2017-01-12

The Kwara State Commander of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, Mr. Rubben Apeh, on Wednesday said the agency had uncovered a warehouse filled with 4.336 tons of cannabis sativa.

He explained that the warehouse was discovered in the Osere area, along Asa Dam Road in Ilorin, the state capital.

He said, "The command's operatives made the seizure on Monday, January 9, 2017. The drug was also concealed in 396 bags."

The commander explained that the command had gotten a tip-off from members of the public and had mounted surveillance thereafter on the areas for about two weeks before the raid.

Speaking with PUNCH Metro in Ilorin on Wednesday, Apeh said there had been no arrest, but added that the seizure was a great relief to humanity, considering the effects the use of such the drug could have on the socio-economic development of the state and Nigeria.

Apeh said, "We are still doing the best we can to ensure that the culprits do not go scot-free. We are still trailing them.

"Cannabis sativa is a very highly controlled drug, not only in Nigeria; its effects is synonymous with cocaine."
