A warehouse harbouring large bags of Indian heml has been discovered by the Ondo State Command of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).
The warehouse has 524 bags stored at Egbeta, the boundary of Ondo and Edo states.
Officials of the NDLEA who carried out the raid in the early hours of Wednesday arrested two suspects in connection with the bags of cannabis.
Two bags of cannabis seeds were also seized during the operation that lasted for many hours.
Addressing reporters, Cally’s Alumona, the acting State Commander, said the state is unsafe for Indian hemp cultivators and traffickers.
He said the owner of the warehouse is still at large, stressing that the command is on his trail.
The acting commander added that such operation would continue until the state is free of the drug.
