Troops of 81 Division have foiled an attempt to smuggle seven hundred and ninety-two parcels of illicit drugs suspected to be Marijuana into Ogun State at a checkpoint along the Ilaro-Benin Republic Border following an intelligence-driven operation.

A release by the Acting Deputy Director, 81 Division Army Public Relations, Major Olaniyi Osoba, said the parcels of Indian helm were concealed in a truck coming from the Volta Region of Ghana.

It was estimated that the suspected illicit drugs were worth about ten million naira to be delivered to a drug syndicate based in Lagos currently on the run.

A search on the truck conveying the suspected consignment indicated that it was designed specifically to convey illicit drugs as there was a special compartment welded to the base of the truck for concealment purposes.
