NDLEA Bemoans Attack on Agency by Fake security Men Protecting Drug Cartels
The National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency says its operatives were attacked by “suspected fake security operatives” who escaped with a drug suspect in Ikoyi, Lagos State.
NDLEA’s spokesperson, Femi Babafemi, disclosed this in a chat with PremiumTimes, on Wednesday, January 11, 2023.
He said their operatives were attacked while on the trail of a truck conveying a drug suspect & illicit drugs on Awolowo road on January 10. “They went away with the drug suspect in their vehicle but we got support from the soldiers from nearby military formations as well as reinforcement of our men from the state headquarters.
The reason we called them suspected fake security operatives is that no genuine officers paid with taxpayers money will do the kind of things that they are doing by escorting drug cartels … to escape security scrutiny,” he said.
According to Vanguard, the NDLEA’s Lagos State Commander, Umar Adoro, said the operation was carried out based on intelligence.
