NDLEA Reacts to Allegations of Harassment by Patience Jonathan


The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, on Monday denied allegations that it was “harassing” a former first lady, Patience Jonathan.
 
In a statement by its spokesperson, Mitchell Ofoyeju, the anti-narcotics agency said it did not harass citizens.

Jonathan had petitioned the House of Representatives last week alleging harassment of her family by security agencies. She had included NDLEA and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC in the charge.

Bright Tamuno, the lawmaker representing Okrika Federal Constituency in Rivers State, had made the claim while presenting the petition at the House’s plenary last Thursday.

In its reaction, the NDLEA maintained it always takes appropriate action against anyone or group of persons who contravene the NDLEA Act Cap N30 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 2001.

“This is done through painstaking investigation, arrest and prosecution of suspected drug traffickers. All operations are conducted in compliance with the rule of law and global best practices,” Ofoyeju added.
