NDLEA loses 58 officers in 2 years, as staff call for sack of Abdallah (Full list)

Some personnel of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) have called for the sack of its chairman, Muhammad Abdullah.

The personnel in a petition accused the chairman of encouraging corruption in the agency by neglecting the welfare of staff.

They also accused Abdullah of soiling the image of the nation before the international community as over 50 personnel met their untimely death since the chairman assumed office.

Petition read in part: “ It is a clear indication that he is not interested in fighting the drug war and corruption. The sum of N50,000 only given to families of three officers; Onwumere Nicholas, Peter Ebun and Abdulrahman Musa who were recently shot dead in Kogi State on October 13, 2017, by gunmen has exposed his insensitivity to the plight of officers. This is unbelievable."

“The drug situation since Abdullah took over is getting worse daily. In addition, the prevalence rate for drug use in the country has become unacceptably high and growing in a geometric proportion. Besides the abuse of cannabis, the use of cough syrups with codeine and other psychotropic substances is taking its toll on the youths."

The document, according to Sahara Reporters showed that, over 50 officers of the agency have died within the past two years.

The personnel urged President Muhammadu Buhari to sack the chairman of the agency and issue a compulsory retirement to the seven directors in the agency.

They also accused the chairman of conniving with drug barons at the expense of Nigeria.

The document signed by Ahmed Yusuf, on behalf of ‘Concerned Officers,’ said that many of the 58 officers died from frustration and criminal neglect of their welfare by Abdullah.

The Concerned Officers in their petition dated January 2, also copied the Senate Committee on Drug & Financial Crimes, House Committee on Drug & Financial Crimes, Attorney General & Minister of Justice, National Security Adviser, acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), chairman, Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) and Femi Falana Chambers.
