The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency said it had found 254 sacks of cannabis at the home of Sulaiman Adebayo in Ogun state, north of Lagos.

Mr Adebayo claimed to have attended the inauguration of a famous hall in Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun state, in 1895 as a small boy, and said he was 114 years old.

There was no independent confirmation of his age, reports Metro.

Mr Adebayo, who said he had been a farmer all his life, told police he thought the sacks contained rice.

"The quantity of drugs suggests a large scale involvement. There is more to the case than Pa Sulaiman," said NDLEA chairman Ahmadu Giade.
