Buhari applauds NDLEA boss on mindboggling drug bust
By Ola Fadoju.
President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the Chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Brig.Gen Buba Marwa (rtd), on the recent successful operation of the Agency leading to the smashing of an international drug syndicate and recovery of 1,855 kilograms of cocaine.
The president’s congratulatory message is contained in a press release issued by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.
In a telephone call to the Chairman of the anti-narcotics agency from New York where he is attending the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA 77), President Buhari said that the news of the recovery gladdens his heart.
At a meeting later with members of his delegation, the President said: “Buba Marwa is doing well. Two tonnes of cocaine, that’s a haul!”
The NDLEA had announced the “highest cocaine seizure” worth over 278 million dollars and the arrest of drug barons including a foreigner in a major operation across different locations in Lagos.BEWARE All Rights Reserved.
