National Drug Law Enforcement Agent shot dead In Kano State


An Operative of National Drug Law
Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) was killed and
three injured today in Kano.
According to retired NDLEA Chairman Col.
Mohammad Mustapha Abdullah, who revealed
the development in Kano, the unfortunate
incident occurred when the patrol team
approached a roadblock whereby the gunmen
laid ambush to the personnel of the NDLEA.
Although, the Chairman said it was not certain
whether or not the perpetrators were drug
traffickers, insisted the attack would not deter
the agency's war against drug peddlers in the
country. The Kano State commander of the
NDLEA, Mr. Hamza Umar told journalists that
the late officer who was shut from behind had
the bullets gushed out through his chest had
since buried according to Islamic rite at his
Zuru in Kebbi State.
Mohammad who was on an emergency visit to
Kano command regretted the loss of the slain
officer who he said could have survived the
stray bullets if the agency was adequately
kitted with bulletproof. He explained the ugly
trend has further revealed how NDLEA was
poorly funded and acutely lacking needed
logistics.
The NDLEA while consoling the men and
officers of the command over the attack wants
the operatives to remain resolute on the front
line, reminding that their responsibility was a
clarion call to the nation and humanity.
"We have lost a senior and gallant officer in
active service and even though the loss of life
is certain this one is sad and painful but that
will not stop us from the fight. Although the
men were on a routine operation, if they were
adequately equipped perhaps they would have
won the gun duel with the unknown gunmen.
But again this incident will further enable us to
continue our consistent call on the federal
government for better funding of the agency."
