A Ford Transit van and a lorry with an international registration were used to transfer the bags of dried substance, which were thought to be marijuana, to an unidentified destination.
At Dabala, in the South Tongu District of the Volta Region, the Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) discovered 119 sacks of a compressed, dried substance that was likely Indian hemp and made an arrest of the driver.
Security officials claim that a Ford transit van and a lorry with international license plates that broke down en route were carrying suspected narcotics to an unidentified location.
The van has been seized and the driver has been detained.
Alhaji Iddrisu Iddisah Seidu, the acting commissioner of the GRA’s Customs Division, told reporters before delivering the sacks of suspected contraband to the Narcotics Control Commission (NACOC) that the driver’s arrest was based on information.
He urged citizens to continue working with law enforcement to find those responsible for crimes of this nature.
