The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency didn’t incinerate the entire 1,855kg of cocaine seized from Ikorodu as 27.5kg of cocaine was secured for the purpose of prosecution. This was disclosed by the NDLEA spokesperson Femi Babafemi .
Claims and insinuations that NDLEA has destroyed all drug exhibits recovered from the Ikorodu cocaine warehouse are false and misleading. Our statement on the public destruction clearly states that the order to destroy the seizure was issued by a Federal High Court Lagos
The statement further states that a portion of the drug seizure is secured for the purpose of prosecuting the suspects in court. As part of transparency and in line with legal procedures, the suspects were taken to the venue of public destruction to witness quantity destroyed.
According to the statement, 27.5kg of the cocaine has been secured for the purpose of prosecution. Those making unfounded claims obviously didn’t read our earlier statement or doing that out of mischief. Please disregard their falsehood.
