We are not harrassing you- NDLEA replies former first lady, Patience Jonathan

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has denied the allegation from former Nigerian first lady Patience Jonathan that it is using its operatives to harass her.

Mrs Jonathan last week, sent a petition to the House of Representatives in which she accused the NDLEA, EFCC and other security agencies of harassing her.

In a statement released yesterday, the spokesperson of NDLEA, Mitchell Ofoyeju, described the allegations as spurious and misleading as she was not being investigated by the agency.
“The NDLEA, as a reputable agency of government, does not harass. Rather, it 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.”
The NDLEA spokesperson stated that the agency would not harass any person or organization but those who violate the country’s drug laws, no matter their status, would be arrested and brought to book.
