Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) have seized a total of 8,852kgs (8.8 tons) of ‘Canadian Loud’, an imported synthetic strain of cannabis, at the Eleko Beach road in the Lekki area of Lagos State after a 30-minute gunfight with armed men escorting the consignment loaded in two trucks.
The spokesman of the agency, Femi Babafemi, said on Sunday in Abuja via a statement that acting on credible intelligence, NDLEA operatives had laid an ambush on the traffickers along the Eleko Beach road in Lekki and at 4:51 am on Thursday 4th May.
According to him, two long trucks conveying the illicit consignments were flagged down but rather than stopp the trucks escorted by armed men sped off, as a result of which there was an exchange of gunfire that lasted 30 minutes.
