The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has announced its partnership with the French Police.
This was disclosed by the anti-narcotics agency’s spokesperson, Femi Babafemi, on Friday, in Abuja.
Babafemi said the Police Attaché at the French Embassy in Nigeria, Emmanuel Verin, led a team of French trainers including Cedric B. and Christophe J, to the office of the NDLEA Chairman, Buba Marwa, in Abuja.
According to the statement, Marwa appreciated the support from the Police Nationale of France, especially in the areas of training and equipment.
The NDLEA boss also appreciated the French Government for its support as one of the anti-narcotics agency’s leading partners.
He said; “We have received tremendous help from France not only in terms of training but also equipment. The support was capped with my recent visit to France where we received warm reception at all the institutions visited and the training promised was promptly organised. We’re grateful for that and we are looking forward to more collaboration and support.’’
Verin, in his response said; “We’re proud to work with the NDLEA because your officers and men are very smart and professional and that’s why you’re getting results, hence, our priority in terms of support for the NDLEA is in the area of training. Our trainers, who have been here to train your men, are specialists and top in the field. We’ll do this for a very long time and we’re glad to work with you.”
