“Illegal goods” found with prospective pilgrims

Some illegal substances were on Sunday, August 4, retrieved by Officials of the Narcotics Control Board (NACOB) from prospective pilgrims of this year’s Hajj at the Hajj Village in Tamale.

The contraband goods were retrieved through a search as part of the checking-in process to ensure that illegal substances were not smuggled into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The items included tramadol and cola nuts, and other unprescribed items.

Radio Ghana picked from the grounds that the contraband goods shielded in Brown Gold Beverage cans, bowls and bags by some of the would-be pilgrims especially women were to be smuggled into Mecca and Medina to trade.

The NACOB officials cautioned the would-be pilgrims to desist from smuggling these substances into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia since pilgrims who would be caught trading them will face the full rigorous of the country’s laws.
