The Plateau State Police Command has intercepted a heavy-duty truck that was transporting assorted drinks and over 100 bags of suspected cannabis. The Commissioner of Police, Okoro Julius Alawari, revealed that the exhibits were hidden behind the drinks in the truck.
A patrol team discovered the illegal cargo during a stop-and-search exercise along Kwata Road in the Jos South Local Government Area. The police had earlier received intelligence of a truck offloading a consignment of suspected cannabis to two smaller vehicles at the Kwata axis of Jos South.
Four suspects have been arrested in connection with the crime, and investigations are ongoing to identify the real owners of the transported items.
