The presidency has said the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has arrested a man, who is said to provide hard drugs for Boko Haram terrorists in Nigeria.
A presidential media aide, Lauretta Onichie, disclosed this in a tweet on Thursday, April 1.
According to her, the suspect, Adama Uomar (35), is a Chadian national who procures narcotics for the insurgents.
The tweet read,
“The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, @ndlea_nigeria, has arrested a member of the Boko Haram value chain, 35-year-old Chadian, Adama Uomar Issa who procures narcotics for Boko Haram insurgents in Taraba State. “He was caught in possession of hard drug”.
This report is coming days after the president departed to the United Kingdom for his routine medical check-up.
It will be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari had tasked security chiefs to identify and expose sponsors of banditry and kidnapping before he left for his trip to the UK.
The arrest of Uomar may be a direct response to Buhari’s directive to security agencies to fish out sponsors of insurgency throughout the country.
