Nigeria: Three Policemen Dismissed for Drug Trafficking in Kogi

Lokoja — The Kogi State Police Command has dismissed three police officers for alleged involvement in drug trafficking. The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, Kogi State Command, arrested the officers, on November 7, while allegedly escorting a vehicle loaded with 30 bags of weeds suspected to be Indian hemp out of Lokoja.

The command's Public Relations Officer, William Aya, confirmed this to journalists yesterday.

He said that NDLEA would handle their prosecution, adding that the three officers were dismissed after they were found guilty by a board room trial conducted by the police and that their dismissal followed due process.

The illicit drugs were been conveyed in a Toyota Picnic car with registration number Kogi KNA 185 LG when it was intercepted by NDLEA operatives.
