NDLEA, Femi Babafemi, announced this in a statement on Sunday.

According to the statement, three trucks with huge bags of the psychoactive narcotic were tracked down and seized in Lagos’ Ojuelegba neighbourhood early Sunday morning, January 28.

“In the process of blocking the vehicles, two of the drivers jumped off on motion while the third driver, 66-year-old Nasiru Ojomu, who works with wanted Akala, Mushin-based drug baron, Suleiman Jimoh (alias Olowo Idi Ogede, also known as Temo) was arrested.
