Four Nigerians have been arrested at Wasipe in the Bole District of the Northern Region in a joint operation dubbed, ‘Operation Koudanlgou II.
Security agents from Burkina Faso, La Cote d’Ivoire and Ghana took part in the operation.
The four Nigerians, who are siblings, were arrested by the team when a sack containing dried leaves suspected to be marijuana and some illicit drugs was found in their possession.
The suspects include three women and a male in their 20s; their names were not immediately known.
According to the male suspect, he moved from Imo State in Nigeria to Ghana with his siblings to visit their mother who lives at Wasipe.
He, however, denied ownership of the illicit drugs, indicating that a friend brought them to him at his shop but he was ignorant of the content of the sack.
However, the suspects were sent to the Bole Police Station for further investigations.
