Nigerian Navy Halts N254M Cannabis Haul in Lagos

The Nigerian Navy ship, NNS BEECROFT, recently intercepted cannabis worth N254 million at Eleko Beach in Lekki, Lagos.

This incident follows the NDLEA’s seizure of 8,852 kilograms in the same area six months ago, marked by a 30-minute gunfire exchange. Commodore Kolawole Olumide Oguntuga, NNS BEECROFT’s commander, highlighted Eleko Beach’s emergence as a hotspot for drug trafficking.

The successful seizure resulted from the rapid response of command officers to escalating criminal activities in the state’s backwaters.
