Chairman, National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Brig. Gen. Buba Marwa (Retd) has warned newly trained officers of the anti-narcotic about the consequences of compromising the renewed war against drug abuse and trafficking in the country.

He gave the warning on Saturday at the passing out parade of 2,000 Narcotic Assistants at the NDLEA Academy, Jos, Plateau State.

In a statement by the agency’s spokesman, Femi Babafemi, the NDLEA boss reminded the new officers of series of steps taken in the past 12 months to reposition the Agency for effectiveness.

“With the change process that has taken place since January 2021, you can rest assured that NDLEA is a good place to be, now or in the future and you can look forward to a fulfilling career”.

The NDLEA Chairman, represented by his Special Adviser, Colonel Yakubu Bako (Rtd) charged the graduands to live up to the expectations of the Agency and Nigeria.

This set of 2,000 is the last batch of 5,000 newly recruited officers and men to be trained at the Academy since last year.
