NDLEA Denies Harassing Ex-First Lady Patience Jonathan

Published

on

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has
denied the allegation from former Nigerian first lady Patience Jonathan
that it is harassing her. The anti-narcotics agency described the allegation as spurious and
misleading, stressing that it had no case against Mrs. Jonathan. The
agency emphasized, however, that no individual is above the law.



A statement by Mitchell Ofoyeju, the spokesperson for NDLEA,
expressed surprise that the agency could be mentioned in a petition by
Mrs. Jonathan when she was not being investigated by the agency.

Mr. Ofoyeju stated that the former first lady, in a petition
presented before the House of Representatives by a lawmaker from Rivers
State, Mr. Gogo Bright-Tamuno, on behalf of her lawyer, Granville Abibo,
purported that the NDLEA and other agencies were constantly harassing
her.

He said that the speaker, Mr. Yakubu Dogara, who presided over the
session, admitted the petition and referred it to the Committee on
Public Petitions for hearing.

“The NDLEA, as a reputable agency of government, does not harass.
Rather, it takes appropriate action against anyone or group of persons
who contravene the NDLEA Act Cap N30 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria
2001,” the statement said.

“This is done through painstaking investigation, arrest and
prosecution of suspected drug traffickers. All operations are conducted
in compliance with the rule of law and global best practices.”

The agency reiterated its commitment to ridding the country of
narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances, adding that it remained
committed to the fight against drug cultivation, trafficking and abuse.

Mr. Ofoyeju insisted that the agency would not harass any person or
organization, but those who violate the country’s drug laws, no matter
their status, would not go unpunished.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
