Drug trafficking: NDLEA could mean trouble for lords

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, or NDLEA, announced that it will step up its campaign against illegal substances, warning that anyone caught up in the conflict would face harder times.

NDLEA would pursue anyone selling narcotics, whom he referred to as a “dealer of death,” according to the agency’s secretary, Mr. Shadrach Haruna, who spoke on behalf of the chairman of the organization, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (retd).
He spoke outside the National Association of Nigerian Drug Monitoring (NANDRUM) and the leadership of the National Assembly’s third annual drug lecture series in Abuja, where they praised NDLEA for its efforts in combating the drug problem there.

Newscrescent reports that, Haruna acknowledged the difficulties in combating drug trafficking but insisted that the fight will be stepped up even as it serves as a springboard for terrorism, banditry, and other types of criminal activity.

“We all know that drug misuse has been a problem in this nation and that it wreaks havoc on many families. Banditry, terrorism, and other types of violent crimes and social vices have all increased in the nation, and they are all linked to drug and alcohol consumption. To free Nigeria and Nigerians from the issues associated with drug and substance addiction is what NDLEA is dedicated to doing, he said.

In response to inquiries about the role of privileged members of society in drug trafficking, the NDLEA Secretary stated that “they are the ones who are doing it.”
