The Western Marine Command of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) on Thursday said it intercepted cannabis worth N150 million and arrested a suspect.

The illicit drug was handed over to the Lagos commander of National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Alhaji Sule Aliyu.

NAN reports that the handover was done by the Controller Western Marine, Mr Umar Yusuf, in the presence the Zonal Coordinator of Customs, an Assistant Comptroller-General of Customs, Mr Eporwei Edike.

Yusuf said that his team was liaising with other security agencies to check smugglers.

He said the command had repaired 14 of its patrol boats.

According to him, the seizure was made on Feb. 9 in Badagry and a 25-year-old suspect known as Bala Mamudu, of Awuse village, Ojo, Lagos, was arrested.

He said the seized item and the suspect would be handed over to the NDLEA.
