Emmanuel said;

“I was paid N500,000 to smuggle the goods from the border to Lagos Island but when the consignment was searched by customs officers at Gbaji checking point, it turned out to be cannabis.

That was how they arrested, dismissed and transferred me to NDLEA. I was only concerned about taking care of my wife and child. I did not know what next to do.”

The NDLEA spokesperson revealed that, the estimated value of the drug that weighed about 394kg, is N4m. The drugs were discovered and seized by Customs officers after the suspect was arrested at the Gbaji checking-point along the Lagos-Badagry Expressway.
