LAGOS NDLEA IMPOUNDS 2,135.5 KGS OF MARIJUANA
LAGOS -The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, Lagos State command made
its biggest seizure of Marijuana, otherwise known as Indian Hemp recently,
with a total of about 2,135.5 kilogrammes, parading 12 suspects, from whom
the seizure were made.
Addressing reporters in Lagos, the Sector Comman-der, Mr. Abiodun
Adesola said the seizure, the biggest so far since the command was
created, was seized from suspects at different locations in Lagos State.
Adesola said the most popular syndicates in the illicit business seems
to come from a particular area in the South-south geographical zone,
networking other areas in the south-west.
"It was discovered that these large seizures were meant for
distribution and consumption in Lagos, but the most disturbing aspect
is that those that bring in these large consignments into Lagos seem
to come from a particular zone of the country. It is painful that this
attitude of man's inhumanity to man is seen purely as a business
venture by this set of people", he said, assuring that the Agency will
frustrate such destructive venture in whatever form, no matter the
extent of the disguise.
Adesola said since the beginning of the year, the Agency had
re-defined its strategies, repositioned its officers and also
refocused its operations for greater efficiency.
