Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency came under attack on Saturday in Lagos in the course of effecting the arrest of a suspected drug kingpin.
NDLEA spokesman, Femi Babafemi, confirmed the attack in a statement.
“NDLEA has arrested a drug kingpin and seized drugs in a notorious drug den on Lagos Island.
“The drug kingpin mobilised members of his cartel to attack men of the NDLEA.
“The operatives were on the Island to arrest the kingpin of the illicit trade before they were resisted and massively attacked,’’ Babafemi stated.
The agency wrote: “A lot of fake narratives have been going on on what happened at Petty area of Lagos Island earlier today. Please disregard them. Truth is our operatives went for the arrest of a major drug kingpin and we got her and 5 others with almost 6,000kg of drugs despite attacks on our men.”
