NDLEA Arrests Over $ 80 Billion Drugs In Three Months

seizes over 2 million kilograms of drugs Arrests over 2,000 At least 2 million kilograms of narcotics worth N80 billion seized by the NDLEA in three months. The chairman of the commission, retired Brigadier General Mohamed Buba Marwa, made this known when he received the Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba Alkali, during his visit to the NDLEA on Wednesday. Marwa explained to the Judge that the commission had won more than 300 cases in court, with the successful arrest of 2,000 offenders, within 100 days of his presidency.

These successes, according to Marwa, are due to the agency's ability to apprehend drug traffickers in Nigeria or from Nigeria to another country. The president said there was no doubt that with the cooperation of the NDLEA and the Nigeria Police Service through intelligence sharing, there would be more arrests of drug traffickers and their traffickers in Nigeria. The president said "more than 15 million people in Nigeria are currently dealing in drugs which is in fact excessive. Note the task given to us by the president to eradicate drugs and restore a safe Nigeria. For his part, the Interim Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba Alkali, said that there was a need for co-operation between the two countries.

For his part, the Interim Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba Alkali, said there was a need for co-operation between the police and the NDLEA because, according to him, most criminals in Nigeria were using drugs. He therefore said that they were ready to cooperate fully with the Anti-Drug Commission in the conduct of its activities to ensure the safety and elimination of drugs in the community.
