Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (retd), who appreciated past support of the German government in the areas of training, supply of dogs and vehicles, avowed that the canine facility will further boost NDLEA’s operations.
Marwa disclosed that the support of the German government accounted for over 26 arrests and seizures of over 17.932 metric tons of narcotic drugs (including cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, ephedrine and cannabis) made with the assistance of narcotics detection dogs.
Ritterhoff, who commended Marwa for the transformation he has brought to NDLEA within a short time, expressed appreciation to Marwa's speedy approval of the commencement of the NDD project, which he assured will be completed in phases over the next four years.
