Lagos: NSCDC intercepts N64m ‘Ghana loud’ on sea, traffickers escape



The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Lagos has intercepted 101 bags of suspected cannabis sativa.

The hard drugs worth N64 million were seized on the high sea close to Ibeshe waters.

NSCDC Lagos Commandant, Okoro Eweka, addressed reporters on Friday in Lagos.

Eweka said the Nigeria-bound illicit consignment was conveyed in a Cotonou boat by suspected Ghanaians.

At about 2am on Friday, the command’s anti-vandal team observed the traffickers following intelligence.

“On sighting the NSCDC gunboat, the occupants screamed and dived into the sea”, NAN quoted him saying.

“Our team did not want to shoot but drove the boat to the defence jetty in Ijora at 11a.m.”

Eweka promised that the corps would work harder to stop the inflow of drugs from neighbouring countries.

The official said the cannabis came into Nigeria from Ghana, as evidenced by the packing “in pawpaw and bible shape”.

“This Ghana species intoxicates highly and this is the reason they refer to it as ‘loud’ in local parlance,” he explained.

Eweka appealed to the Ghanaian government to discourage its nationals from flooding Nigeria with hard drugs.

He informed the public that the 9 Ghanaians arrested in February were prosecuted by the NDLEA and jailed on October 14.

The latest seizure would be handed over to the anti-narcotics agency, the security chief added.
