Boko Haram: It seems that Nigeria’s security forces and other anti-corruption agencies are serious with President Muhammadu Buhari’s standing order to fish out sponsors of insurgency throughout the country.
Just one day after the president departed to the United Kingdom (UK) for his routine medical check-up, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has made an important catch.
According to a presidential media aide, Lauretta Onichie, the NDLEA on Thursday, April 1, announced that it arrested a hard drug provider for Boko Haram terrorists in Nigeria.
The name of the 35-year-old suspect, who happens to be a Chadian national is Adama Uomar who procures narcotics for the insurgents in Taraba.
Onochie’s tweet read: “The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, @ndlea_nigeria, has arrested a member of the B’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 assorted hard drugs.”
