NDLEA Arrests 534 Suspects During Raids On Drug Joints Nationwide

Cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, tramadol, codeine-based syrup, and cannabis sativa are among tons of illicit drugs seized in a raid on drug joints nationwide.

Not less than 534 suspects have been arrested so far.

Top on the list with high arrests and seizures are Lagos, Kano, Abuja, Kaduna, Rivers, Bayelsa, Adamawa, Osun, Benue and Plateau States.

Coordinated by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), the exercise code-named ‘Operation Mop Up’ is part of the efforts to remove enablers of crime and violence in the form of illicit substances and drug dealers to ensure the peaceful inauguration of new administrations at national and sub-national levels across the country on May 29, according to the Director, Media & Advocacy, Femi Babafemi.

Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of the Agency, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd) commended all the officers and men involved in the exercise for their professionalism, charging them to continue with the operational maxim of ‘offensive action’ against drug cartels and traffickers until the last gram of illicit drug is taken out of the streets and communities across the country.

“I’m impressed by the level of compliance with the directive to all our commands and formations to dismantle all drug joints within their areas of responsibility, mop up all illicit substances in such locations and arrest all those culpable.

“This will in no small measure take out of the equation, enablers of crime and violence such as illicit drugs, their dealers and all those relying on mind-altering substances to disrupt the May 29 inauguration ceremonies across the states and the Federal Capital Territory”, he stated.
