The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency says a group of drug cartels have abducted a retired NDLEA officer after officers arrested a 19-year-old female drug dealer, Mngunengen Achir, in Benue State.

NDLEA spokesman, Femi Babafemi, in Abuja in a statement Sunday, said Achir was arrested with 5.5kg cannabis and 112grams of diazepam on October 6 in the Aliade area of the state.

“Other members of the arrested lady’s cartel abducted the retired NDLEA personnel from that community who they assumed was still a serving officer, took him to a forest and demanded for the release of the suspect in custody before their victim would be freed,” he said.

Babafemi said NDLEA officers had, in the past week, arrested 110 drug dealers in nine states, dismantled their hideouts and seized assorted illicit substances.

He listed the states as Lagos, Benue, Kwara, Ondo, Kano, Nasarawa, Akwa Ibom, Oyo and Rivers.
