United States of America strengthens NDLEA on forensic, intelligence gathering capabilities, Agency reveals

The government of the United States of America has announced a project in Nigeria that will strengthen the forensic and chemical analysis capacity of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA as well as its intelligence gathering and e-library prosecution capabilities in the country.

While revealing this in Washington DC of the United States, it was noted that the latest support from the United States Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs is coming in line with an award of N500 million grant to fund selected projects in the anti-narcotics agency by one Abdul Samad Rabiu Initiative programme.

Femi Babafemi Who is the the NDLEA spokesperson, disclosed this today, Monday via statement obtained by the newsmen.

Femi Babafemi revealed, “According to an official letter announcing the US project grant to the NDLEA, the award followed requests by the Chairman, NDLEA, Brig. Gen. Buba Marwa (retd.), during a series of meetings with top US officials both in Abuja and in Washington DC. The letter noted that the project will be implemented by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime in Nigeria.

“Aside from the support for the forensic and chemical analysis capacity of the agency, the US government also said the project would further support the NDLEA efforts to conduct intelligence-led investigations through diverse resources as well as legal books and an e-library for prosecution and other legal needs of the agency.

“Through all this, the NDLEA will be better equipped to prosecute cases with reliable evidence, using improved collection, handling, and custodial procedures. We appreciate our strong and continued working relationship and believe this project will be an important step in advancing our shared goal of a united, peaceful, and stable Nigeria.”
