The contraband was seized from one Mr Sunday Obi during a stop and search operation by men of the Oyo state command of the NDLEA in Ogbomosho.

The representative of NDLEA commandant in Oyo state, Mrs Omolade Faboyede and the Public Relations Officer, Mrs Mutiat Okuwobi  said some of the documents found in the suspect’s car which all bear conflicting names led them to his residence at Olode Adegbayi, Ibadan, where more surprising discovery was made.
