Odili maintained that the NDLEA had taken the fight to the doorsteps of drug traffickers through its operations that led to the arrest of suspects, recovery of weapons and seizure of illicit drugs.
According to her, the command arrested “181 suspects who comprise 147 male suspects and 34 female suspects from February till date.”
She added that three locally-made pistols were recovered during the operations in different parts of Ogun, saying the guns were handed over to the police.
