Packages containing suspected cannabis were intercepted near the Burkina Faso border.

981 sacks of what appeared to be marijuana were intercepted at Liero, a community near Fielmuo near the Burkina Faso border.

A joint patrol team of Immigration officers and Ghana Police Service personnel conducted the operation.

According to the Ghana Immigration Service, a patrol team acting on information conducted a swoop in the house of a man (name withheld) in Liero, where it was discovered that most of the rooms were stocked with sacks containing the suspected substance, which was later determined to be marijuana.

It went on to say that the personnel retrieved the suspected substances, totaling 981 parcels, and delivered them to the Hamile Border Post for further investigation and action.

"The respective state security agencies would be invited to analyze the exhibits to confirm the veracity of our strong suspicions about the substance."

Meanwhile, frantic efforts are being made to apprehend individuals associated with the ceased substance in order to aid in the investigation and appropriate action."

The Hamile Border Post Commander, Chief Supt. Owusu Ansah, thanked the locals who provided the tip that led to the seizure.

"While we appreciate the excellent rapport with the locals, we would like to respectfully advise the few unrepentant ones not to get in our way." "They must either change or we will change them; there is no middle ground," he said.
