The Eastern Regional police have impounded 33 fertilizer sacks containing 2, 228 slabs of compressed substance suspected to be Indian hemp at Kpong ready to be transported to the Tema port.

Public Relations Officer of the Eastern Regional Police, ASP Ebenezer Tetteh in an interview on Adom News said the substance was found in the possession of three persons who have cultivated wee in the proposed University of Ghana Soil and Irrigation Resource Center at Kpong.

He said one was arrested and two managed to escape and abandoned a Kia Rhino truck with registration No. GN 4587-15.
