The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has reacted to reports that its operatives shot two persons dead during a raid in the Idioro area of Mushin Lagos.
In an interview with DAILY POST on Thursday, NDLEA spokesperson, Femi Babafemi said the agency’s operatives came under attack on Wednesday night when it raided Mushin to arrest drug barons behind shipments of drugs from Ghana.
He explained that the agency’s operatives resorted to self-defence to escape the attack.
He revealed that the suspected drug barons are Saheed Solola and Suleiman Shehu.
He added that the agency arrested the suspects with drug shipments and vehicles.
“Our men on Wednesday night went to Mushin to arrest the baron behind shipments of drugs that have been coming from Ghana.
“After the arrest of some of the wanted suspects and recovery of drugs and their vehicles, our men came under attack from their boys, who had locked all the exit gates in the community, and our officers had to defend themselves to come out of the area alive”, he said.
