One arrested as police intercept illicit drugs worth N3m in Lagos

Operatives of the Lagos State Police Command have intercepted ten luggage of illicit drugs suspected to be Indian Hemp.

Spokesperson of the command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, in a press release on Sunday, May 1, stated the drugs, packed in ten sacks, had been being conveyed in a Lagos color commercial bus with registration number LND 995 XT from Iddo to a destination in Mushin.

Luck, nevertheless, ran out on the suspects when vigilant Rapid Response Squad (RRS) operatives on routine patrol stopped the bus at about 0400hrs on April 29, 2022 at Stadium Bus Stop, Surulere.

While two occupants of the automobile escaped, the driver, Amodu Agbaje, was apprehended. The arrested driver claimed he was offered Twenty-Five Thousand Naira (N25,000) to convey the drugs with road value of Three Million Naira (N3,000,000).

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi, has directed the Commander RRS, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi, to transfer the suspect and the exhibits to the Command Headquarters for additional investigations.
