The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency has been lauded by the Adeboruwa of Igbogbo Kingdom, Oba Semiudeen Kasali over its recent drug-syndicate uncovering.
Oba Kasali appraisal comes following the uncovering of a warehouse with drugs valued at N194bn found in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State.
According to The Punch, Kasali said this in a statement, hailing men of the military and para-military for sensitising Nigerians against any forms of criminality.
He said, “The recent smooth operation by the gallant officers of the NDLEA attests to how professional the agency is in investigating and unravelling such ignoble businesses by people. We equally applaud the support of the international agency that made the NDLEA achieve the feat with ease.
The monarch, who also commended the people of Ikorodu, urged residents and indigenes to desist from engaging in any form of crime to make money.
“Our youths must avoid partaking in any unpatriotic activity that could threaten the peace of the community and the nation at large,” he said.
Kasali said the noble character of the people of Igbogbo Kingdom and Ikorodu at large should not be tarnished by people from other tribes and nationalities.
