In a telephone call from New York where he is attending #UNGA , President Buhari congratulated the Chairman @ndlea_nigeria, Brig. Gen. Buba Marwa (retd), on the recent smashing of an international drug syndicate and recovery of 1,855kg of cocaine.
The President told the @ndlea_nigeria Chairman: “I deeply appreciate the work that you have put into the eradication of the drug menace. It gladdens my heart as I continue to follow the successes achieved under your leadership.”
“You have demonstrated over and again that choosing you to lead this fight against wicked merchants of death whose sole aim is to endanger and truncate the future of our youth is a very good choice. Please keep up the good work.” — President @MBuhari
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 arrest of drug barons including a foreigner in a major operation lasting two days across different locations in Lagos.
