Retired NDLEA officer who was abducted by drug cartel in Benue state regains freedom

The retired officer of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in Benue State who was abducted by a drug cartel, has regained his freedom.


LIB reported that his abductors who thought he is still a serving officer, had demanded that a female member of the cartel identified as 19-year-old Mngunengen Achir, be released after she was arrested. 


Achir was arrested with 5.5kg cannabis and 112grams of diazepam on October 6 in Aliade area of the state.


The retired NDLEA retiree was released by his captors a day after he was taken away, as the NDLEA refused bowing to the demands of the cartel.
