It was a sad Sunday for the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) as three of its officers were attacked and killed by a mob while on official assignment in Owode, Ogun State.

The incident occurred during the arrest of a notorious cannabis dealer, Azeez Babatunde.

The officers – Bolaji Owolodun, Rabiu Usman Kazaure and Ishaku Joshua were confirmed dead following the attack.

Chairman of the agency, Ahmadu Giade, who received the news of the officers’ death with shock, vowed to bring the perpetrators to justice.

“It is shocking that officers on legitimate assignment will be attacked and killed by people whose interest they are protecting.

“I have ordered investigation into the incident and the agency will leave no stone unturned until the perpetrators are arrested and dealt with in accordance with the laws of the country”, Giade assured.

Mr. Giade described the slain officers as gallant heroes of the anti-narcotics crusade.

“These gallant heroes have paid the supreme price for a drug-free society. We shall immortalize them by punishing the culprits and sustain the fight against drug barons.

“The agency will take good care of the family members they have left behind”, the NDLEA boss added.
