The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Edo Command, says it has discovered a suspected cannabis warehouse in Ukpuje forest in Owan West Local Government Area of the state.
The state commander of the agency, Mr Buba Wakawa, announced this at a news conference on Saturday in Benin. Wakawa alleged that the suspected illicit drug village had four large cannabis warehouses with 233,778 kilogrammes of dried weeds suspected to be cannabis. He said that the substance had an estimated street value of more than N1.4 billion.
He also said that seven suspected drug barons believed to be running the cannabis trafficking syndicate had equally been apprehended. “This is the largest single concentration of cannabis discovered by the command,” he said.
Wakawa added that it took the combined team of NDLEA and combatant military personnel to overrun the drug trafficking syndicates
