”Our initial investigations have revealed that the consignment was taken from Lagos and heading to Kano for delivery. Though the two men identified themselves as military officers but that did not sway our men from a thorough search of their vehicle, and the result was the discovery of the illicit drugs tucked in every hidden part of the vehicle. Indeed, we suspect the two men to be fake military officers until proven otherwise” Adewunmi said

He added that the vehicle has been impounded, the illicit drugs seized and the suspects detained for further investigations.
