Police Intercept Bus Loaded With Illicit Drugs In Lagos
Operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) in the early hours of Sunday, April 3, 2022 intercepted a busload of illicit drugs at the Mile 2 area of Lagos State.
Preliminary investigations reveal that the drugs which were loaded in a Lagos colour LT bus, with the registration number AGL 205 YD belonged to one Alhaji, better known as General in Mushin.
A member of the drug syndicate confessed that they picked up the consignment, which has a street value of about Ten Million Naira (10,000,000.00), at Alaba Rago around 2200hrs on Saturday for shipment to Mushin.
Luck however ran out on them when RRS officials on patrol stopped the bus on a routine check at about 0400hrs Sunday. Another member of the syndicate, Oluwole Omojuyitan aged 40 who had initially escaped the scene on bike was arrested by the operatives after he came back with a sum of Five Hundred Thousand Naira (N500,000.00) to bribe the officers to release the drugs and suspects.
