Customs Intercept Cannabis Worth N516m In Lagos

 

The Customs Strike Force, Team A, Ikeja, has said that it intercepted 5,124 kilograms of Cannabis Sativa, along the coast of Lekki, Lagos.

The Customs Comptroller in charge of the team, Sani Yusuf, while addressing journalists on Wednesday at the command, said the contraband with an estimated duty paid value of N516 million, was intercepted following a credible intelligence in January 2023.

He added that the contrabands were being moved directly from the ship to trucks before his men intercepted them.

“The Cannabis was intercepted following a credible intelligence. We intercepted it somewhere around Lekki along the coast at midnight. On getting there, we saw a lot of men loading the contrabands from the ship directly into the truck despite the sea waves.

“Immediately our officers got there, they discovered that they have already loaded the first truck; they were loading the second and third trucks when we got there, there was pandemonium.
