Former NDLEA officer regains freedom from hoodlums


A retired official of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in Benue State, abducted by hoodlums, has regained his freedom.

Newspot reliably gathered that the retiree regained freedom a day after he was kidnapped in his house by the hoodlums.

The former NDLEA officer was abducted after NDLEA officers arrested a 19-year-old suspected drug dealer, Mngunengen Achir, in Aliade, headquarters of the Gwer East Local Government Area of the State.

The 19-year old suspect was arrested with 5.5 kilogrammes of cannabis and 112 grams of Diazepam on October 6 in Aliade.

The hoodlums demanded for the release of the suspect in exchange for the former NDLEA officer, a request that was jettisoned by the agency.

The former NDLEA officer, however, was later released unconditionally.

According to a source, “The retired officer has been released and the suspect is still in custody.”
