NDLEA arrest 2 policemen over illegal arms escort


The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has arrested two police officers for their alleged involvement in the shipment of 1, 250 rounds of live ammunition.


In a statement in Abuja on Tuesday by the spokesman of the agency, Mr. Jonah Achema, he said the live ammunition was intercepted by NDLEA FCT Command during a motorized patrol at the Gwagwalada end of Abuja-Lokoja expressway.
He said the consignment was sent through a transport company from Lagos to be collected by the policemen.
“The two policemen, Jacob Jalwap, an Assistant Superintendent of Police attached to Police Command Headquarters, Jos, Plateau State and Nandul Seizing, a Corporal attached to Angua Rogo, Jos, were arrested in Jos in a follow-up investigation of the live ammunition accompanied with a way bill containing the phone number and name of Nandul Seizing,” Achema said.
He said the duo were arrested when they both turned up to claim the consignment and that both suspects and the exhibits have been transferred to the Police.
He also said that the European Union (EU) commended the agency for its impressive drug control efforts, especially in the fight against drug trafficking in Africa.
“The Agency has consequently been invited to share Nigeria’s experience at EU trans-regional operational meeting against Drugs and Organized Crimes along the Heroine routes. The meeting holds from November 26 – 28, 2018 in Mauritius,” he added.
He quoted the EU as saying, “NDLEA is expected to provide insights into the current situation and trends in Nigeria, including discussing ongoing investigations of landmark cases.”
According to him, the EU expressed optimism that the operational meeting will contribute to stability, peace and the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
He said that the Chairman/Chief Executive, NDLEA, Col. Muhammad Mustapha Abdallah (rtd.), who is leading a team of senior Agency officials to the operational meeting said Nigeria is doing much in the area of drug control and organized crime and that the experience can be shared with other African countries.
