The white, powdery substance, which was concealed in a bag, was on its way into Ghana, but officials could not tell its intended final destination.

A preliminary test at the Customs Office in Aflao proved positive for the banned substance, the Chief Revenue Officer (Communications and Public Affairs) at the Customs Division, Mr Johnson Menlah Yankey, told the Daily Graphic in Accra on Sunday, September 29.

He could, however, not indicate the estimated street value of the seized contraband.

Two suspects, Samuel Chemremeh, 23, and David Chibake, 22, both Nigerians, were arrested and are in the custody of NACOB for further interrogation.

The two men were in charge of the bag in which the banned substance was found.
