Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of NDLEA, Brig. General Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd) in his reaction, commended officers and men of the MMIA Command of the Agency for not allowing criminal elements to take advantage of the Easter holiday to further their illicit trade and dent Nigeria’s image abroad.

“We all must stay committed to the ongoing offensive action at the airports, seaports, land borders, on the streets of Nigerian cities and across the various drug joints and even in the forests where some are hiding to cultivate and process Cannabis Sativa. We must disrupt their illicit trade and dismantle their cartels,” Marwa charged.
