Gunmen kill NDLEA official

Unknown gunmen on Friday gunned down an operative of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, and injured three others in Kano.

The NDLEA Chairman, Mohammad Abdullah, confirming the incident said it occurred when one of its patrol teams approached a road block in the city.

It is not confirmed whether the gunmen were drug traffickers or robbers.

The NDLEA boss blamed NDLEA’s poor funding on why its operatives could not adequately protect themselves from such attacks.

“We have lost a senior and gallant officer in active service and even though a loss of life is certain, this one is saddened and painful but that will not stop us from the fight.

“Although the men were on the routine operation, maybe if they were adequately equipped, perhaps they would have won the gun duel.

“But again this incident will further enable us to continue our consistent call on the federal government for better funding of the agency,” he said.
