The government through the commissioner for forestry, Mr. Taiwo Oludotun said the state government was determined to eradicate illegal activities, especially planting, harvesting, and marketing of narcotics in the state.
The commissioner speaking to journalist after the joint security exercise that led to the destruction of fifteen hectares of Indian hemp farm in Imosa, Ijebu-East Local Government, Ogun State said the exercise would be sustained to rid the state of anti-social elements and illegal activities.
The state commander of NDLEA, Mrs. Archie- Abia Ibinabo in her comment said the exercise was carried out in conjunction with the state government and other security agencies in the state.
She credits the success of the exercise on the intelligence report gotten from members of the public which led to setting the farm on fire.
