Lagos – Col. Muhammad Mustapha Abdallah (retd.), Chairman/Chief Executive of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), has ordered an investigation into the arrest of three Nigerian pilgrims in Saudi Arabia in connection with substances suspected to be cocaine.

Independent gathered that Abdallah, who expressed disappointment at the incident, has constituted a panel of inquiry headed by Mr. Olugbenga Mabo, Director of Operations and General Investigation of the agency,  to immediately investigate the incident because the agency would address the situation with seriousness and urgency. The agency has also deployed more investigators to all the screening camps nationwide.

Abdallah said: “Narcotics smuggling is criminal and the involvement of pilgrims is utterly reprehensible. This is unfortunate and we are working very hard to get to the root of it. The Agency is handling this case with every sense of seriousness and urgency because this action has negatively affected the image of Nigeria. We have also taken measures to intensify the on-going screening of pilgrims who are yet to depart for Saudi Arabia, to prevent a recurrence of the sad incident”.

The NDLEA boss assured members of the public that the agency would  get to the root of the incident as the terms of reference for the panel of inquiry include ascertaining the circumstances behind the non-detection of the pilgrims before takeoff, identification of possible sponsors and source of drug supply as well as make recommendations on effective screening of pilgrims.

He called on pilgrims to uphold the principles of probity and patriotism and eschew any act capable of bringing the image of Nigeria to disrepute.
