Mr Caesar Abanga, Aflao District Police Commander told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that his outfit got a hint at about 0400 hours last Saturday that a vehicle was discharging some goods into a house at Wudoaba.

He said his men rushed to the place and found the sacks each containing between 15 to 50 slabs.

He said the vehicle used to cart the leaves was also being traced.

A police source said this single haul of suspected Indian hemp was the largest seizure for some time now.
