Three young men, who acted as fronts and agents of distribution to a covert drug peddling syndicate, have been arrested by men of the Ogun State Police Command
The suspects ran into police ambush at Ijebu-Itele axis of the Benin/Shagamu Expressway in the early hours of Wednesday, August 8, 2018.
It was gathered that the interception of the Indian Hemp-laden truck was sequel to an intelligent report received by the Command to the effect that the suspects lived on running illegal errands of transporting and delivery of such hard drugs as Nicotine, Indian Hemp as well as dangerous weapons from Delta State, en route Ogun, to Lagos State.

According to the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, who in a press statement made available to this medium, “On the strength of the report, the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, CP Ahmed Iliyasu, directed the Officer-In-Charge Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS), Abeokuta, SP Uba Adams, to go after the suspects.
“In compliance with the CP’s directive, the operatives of the FSARS embarked on a technical-based investigation and profiling of the suspects, which enabled them to intercept them in a truck with registration number KPP 339 XD. On searching the vehicle, 40 bags of weeds suspected to be marijuana was recovered and the suspects were promptly arrested. The suspects are Frank Osai ‘m’39yrs, Elvis Okuse ‘m’ 25yrs and Kelvin Ogagaoghene ‘m’ 24yrs”, the PPRO said.
Crimepuzzle’s investigation further revealed that, on the floor of the intercepted Mercedes Benz 81314 truck, were crates of different brands of beer, a ploy to beat the operatives of the actual consignment of bags of Indian Hemp that were carefully and neatly concealed in a specially built compartment on the roof.

But for the diligence of the eagle-eyed ASP Ayodele Gbenga-led FSARS team of operatives, the hard drug was discovered.
Oyeyemi stated that, “On interrogation, the suspects confessed that the weeds were meant to be delivered to a customer, who they simply identified as Emeka in Mile 2 area of Lagos.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police CP Ahmed Iliyasu has ordered a full scale investigation on the activities of the arrested suspects as well as their sponsors.
