I have just heard this sad news this morning when containers of supposed food items?shipped from Ghana have been intercepted at the UK ‘s ?London’s Heathrow Airport yesterday.
A ll this because of our weak easily corruptible Government Agencies. One of my acquaintances in Ghana when I was there recently told me things are hard because the Cocaine Kingpins who peddled illegal stuff have been chased out of town by the NDC Government. Really ? Its still happening under NDC so who do we believe??Is Ghana a Narco State?
Border officers at Heathrow Airport have made their biggest cannabis seizure in three years after containers arriving on a plane from Ghana were found with drugs worth ?4.3million.
The drugs, which weighed around 1.5 tonnes and had a street value of ?4.3 million, were found in three separate freight containers filled with fresh fruit and vegetables.
Border Force officials found the cannabis in tape-wrapped compressed packages within boxes on the flight from Accra on Monday.
After being seized the drug was taken under armed escort to a secure location, where it will be stored until it is incinerated.
Marc Owen, Heathrow Director for Border Force, said: ?This was smuggling on an industrial scale. It is a significant quantity of cannabis, our biggest seizure of this kind in several years at Heathrow.
?The fact we have stopped it reaching the streets of the UK will make a substantial dent in the profits of the criminals responsible.
?The international drug trade is a vile business that Border Force officers play a key part in disrupting.?
Officers are trying to discover the intended destination of the drugs. Anyone with information should call 0800 59 5000.
