According to Momodu, exhibits recovered from them include 6.3432 kilogrammes of Cannabis sativa,  9.4 grammes of Cocaine and 4.3  grammes of Heroine.

Momodu said the joint raid has come to stay as the agency and its sister agencies would from time to time clamp down on drug peddlers to ensure that the state is free of illicit drugs especially in the parks.

He also disclosed that those arrested would be screened and the innocent ones would be set free, while those with questions would be charged to court.
