NDLEA rewards army officer for fighting drug traffickers in Benue

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in Benue State has rewarded the outgoing Commanding Officer (CO) 72 Special Forces Battalion, Lieutenant Colonel Abdulkadir Alhassan, with the recognition of ambassadorship on the platform of its War Against Drug Abuse Ambassador (WADA).

Alhassan was decorated with the award at the battalion headquarters in North Bank, Makurdi.

State Commander of NDLEA, Mrs Esther Musa, while decorating the senior army officer with the WADA medal, said Alhassan was highly instrumental in the huge successes her command recorded in its 2021 operations.

Musa hailed the commanding officer for the consistent support his unit had given to the agency in conducting several raids and arrests into enclaves of drug abusers, growers and traffickers in the state.
