NDLEA partners Gambia on anti-drugs war

The Chairman/CEO, National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) Col. Muhammed Mustapha Abdallah (rtd.)’ has called for greater collaboration between the agency and its Gambian counterpart in eradicating drug abuse in West African sub-region.

Abdallah stated this on yesterday in Abuja while hosting the delegation of Drug Law Enforcement Agency (DLEAG) of the Gambia.

“Nigeria and Gambia have come a long way with such commonalities as colonial experience, military diplomacy and in the area of the criminal justice system. No country can tackle terrorism, drug trafficking, trafficking in persons, money-laundering and arms struggling alone,” he said.

On his part, the Director General, DLEAG, Mr. Bakary Gassama said the Gambia has found Nigeria as a strategic partner owing to the huge experience at the disposal of NDLEA in drug interdiction.
