US grants NDLEA forensic and intelligence support

The government of the United States has revealed a scheme that will help Nigeria’s fight against illegal narcotics.

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency’s (NDLEA) capacity for forensic and chemical analysis, intelligence gathering, and prosecution will be strengthened by the support.

The intervention is being coordinated by the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) of the U.S. Department of State.

The announcement was announced in a statement released on Monday by Femi Babafemi, Director of Media for NDLEA.

The Chairman, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (ret. ), made the requests after meeting with American representatives in Abuja and Washington, D.C.

The project will be carried out in Nigeria by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), according to the permission letter to Marwa.

The assistance will strengthen NDLEA’s intelligence-driven inquiries using a variety of tools, including legal texts, an e-library for prosecution, and others.

Babafemi claimed that by adopting enhanced collection, handling, and custody practices, the agency will be better able to prosecute cases with solid evidence.

The initiative “will be a vital step in furthering our shared objective of a united, peaceful, and stable Nigeria,” the U.S. government stated in its message.
