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?

 

Cannabis haul: drugs worth ?4.3million have been found at Heathrow. It is the biggest cannabis seizure at the airport in three years.

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.
