The Nigerian Navy ship, NNS BEECROFT, has intercepted over N254 million worth of cannabis sativa at Eleko Beach in the Lekki area of Lagos.

This is coming barely six months after operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) intercepted 8,852 kilograms of cannabis sativa at Eleko Road in the Lekki area of Lagos after over 30 minutes’ exchange of gunfire between the suspects and operatives of the narcotic agency.

Addressing newsmen on the latest seizure, the commander, NNS BEECROFT, Commodore Kolawole Olumide Oguntuga, said Eleko Beach was gradually becoming a spot for drug traffickers.

Oguntuga said the seizure was made as a result of the quick response of officers of the command to emerging crime in the state’s backwaters.
