The operation was carried out by a three-member patrol team between Zukpe and Gali Dzafe within the Ketu North District of the Volta region.

Per a report by Starrfm.com.gh, the products, upon arrival in Togo, were smuggled into Ghana through unapproved routes, avoiding security checkpoints and joined the main urban road.

The leader of the three-member team, Inspector Samuel Ampofo, revealed that the team spotted the vehicle being led by a man on a motorcycle, but both the driver and the motor rider fled when they sensed the presence of the team.
