The Lagos State Police Command says it has uncovered an illegal brewery at Egbe-Afa in Igbogbo, Ikorodu, Lagos State, while five suspects have been arrested.
Edgal Imohimi, Lagos State Commissioner of Police, revealed that the illegal brewery was producing malt drinks, stout and ethanol which they pumped into trucks to bottle at another location.
Mr Imohimi said that the suspects would be subjected to further interrogation to know where the drinks were bottled and sold.
The illegal brewery has more than 1,000 drums of brewed malt and 100 tanks where the drinks are pumped before supplying tankers. A building where operational items of the suspects were kept was also located close to the illegal brewery.
