POLICE authorities in Lagos Tuesday gave insight into the interception of thirty cartons of one of the prohibitive drugs known as Tramadol concealed in between motor spare parts in Lagos. The Commissioner of Police CP Imohimi Edgal who gave the disclosure Tuesday while parading suspects involved in sundry crimes in the sate said the vehicle was intercepted by Police detectives attached to Trade fair Division along the Lagos/Badagry expressway. Visibly disturbed by the rate of youth involvement in hard drugs CP Edgal said all hands must be on deck to saving our children from the menace of hard drugs adding, “On June 29, a team of policemen attached to Trade-fair Division while on a stop-and-search operation intercepted a Scania 220 truck with Reg. No FST-450-OD loaded with 30 cartons of Tramadol 100mg capsules neatly concealed under motor spare parts. In spite of the fact that the drugs were carefully concealed, the eagle-eyed police operatives were able to detect the illegal consignment. The driver of the truck and his conductor were arrested and the truck recovered for further investigation. Let me reiterate that the command will not rest on its oars until our streets are rid of hard drugs. The reward for hard work is hard work. Our children must be saved from the evil effects of illicit drugs. Suspects will definitely be taken to court.”
