The Director-General of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Mrs. Roli Bode-George, has said many drug barons have relocated to neighbouring countries, sayimg the anti- drug posture of the agency was working optimally.
Mrs. Bode George, made this known in a statement yesterday, listed some achievements of the agency as the discovery of six clandestine laboratories in Lagos and Anambra states, destruction of 4,529.15 hectares of Cannabis farms in Osun, Ondo and Edo states.
She said an operation, code named “Weed Eaters”, led to the removal of Nigeria by the United States from the drug majors’ list, thereby easing security checks and screening on Nigerians travelling outside the country, among others.
Mrs Bode George said: “NDLEA can boast of a well-trained and knowledgeable workforce capable of meeting the mandate of the agency. This accounts for the impressive records of arrest, seizures and convictions in the last 10 years to justify its effectiveness as a drug law enforcement agency. As a result of these improved agency’s counter-narcotic measures, most drug barons have relocated to neighbouring countries.
