  • Insecurity: Go harder on drug barons – Marwa charges NDLEA commanders

    Chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd) has charged Zonal Commanders, State Commanders and Area Commanders of the Agency to go after drug barons still in hiding and dismantle their cartels.

    The directive is in line with ongoing efforts to cut off drug supply to elements involved in criminalities across the country.

    Marwa gave the charge during a meeting with Directors and Commanding Officers of the Agency at its national headquarters in Abuja.

    This was disclosed in a statement issued on Thursday by Femi Babafemi, the NDLEA’s Director of Media and Advocacy.

    Marwa said no effort must be spared to remove illicit drug equation from the security challenges facing the country.

    “Commendations apart, we also cannot afford not to tell ourselves the plain truth; we still have a long way to go. Hence commanders, officers and men of NDLEA cant afford to rest on their oars.

    “Yes, we have kept the flag of performance flying, but there’s still room for improvement.

    “There is still much to do. And we cannot afford to be complacent now as we have committed to a lot of ongoing efforts to improve our operational capabilities. We are constantly engaging stakeholders within and outside the country to support and help optimise our capabilities,” he said.

    Marwa further charged the commanders to always ensure that the corporate integrity of the Agency is always protected in all they do, insisting they should shun any act capable of bringing into disrepute the hard-earned reputation of NDLEA.

    The NDLEA boss added that the management will not overlook inappropriate actions as there would be penalties, just as there are rewards for good conduct, hard work and results.

    While assuring the Commanders he remains committed to staff welfare including conducive work environment, allowances, remuneration and entitlements, the NDLEA boss asked them to replicate such in their various Commands.

    He warned that Commanders will have to justify their retention in Command positions with their performance.
