Armed men, Monday night, opened fire on operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, on Awolowo road, in their bid to prevent them from arresting the driver of a truck loaded with several bags of Cannabis.
A source told Vanguard that, the armed men suspected to belong to a yet-to-be-identified security agency also smashed one of the operational vehicles of the anti-narcotic agency.
However, the intervention of some military men prevented what would have resulted in a blood bath, as the armed men fled the scene with the driver of the truck, abandoning the truck.
While responding to inquiries on the incident, Babafemi said, “It happened around 1 am this morning.”
He added that suspected fake security agents who accompanied the truck of cannabis opened fire at the NDLEA operatives.
