The Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, Mohamed Buba Marwa, has applauded the Theatre Commander Joint Task Force (JTF) North East (NE) Operation HADIN KAI (OPHK), Maj Gen GU Chibuisi and troops of OPHK for patriotism, professionalism, gallantry as well as sacrifice to the country.
Marwa gave the commendation recently when he paid a visit to the Headquarters Theatre Command OPHK Maimalari Cantonment Maiduguri.
He said his visit to Theatre Command was to seek more collaboration and support of the military in the offensive against illicit drug use, peddling as well as to deny insurgents the availability of drugs.
The NDLEA boss noted that working together with the military would extinguish the scourge in Nigeria.
He assured the Command of NDLEA’s readiness to sensitize troops on the dangers of illicit drugs and called for a period drugs test for troops.
Marwa further commended troops for their doggedness and commitment to duty.
