By The Rainbow


The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency on Friday discovered a 600-acre hemp farm at Ode Ekiti in the Gbonyin Local Government Area of Ekiti.

The Commandant of the NDLEA in Ekiti, Mr Dele Akingbade, told the News Agency of Nigeria in Ado Ekiti that the hemp farm was the largest individually-owned hemp farm in the state.

Akingbade said the cost of the hemp farm was too huge to be determined immediately.

He described the discovery of the farm as one of the 'biggest feats' of the agency in the state.

Akingbade said the agency made the discovery on a vast expanse of land on July 24.

According to him, the discovery follows a tip-off by concerned members of the public. (NAN)
