ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), has debunked a trending video of some persons wearing red jackets similar to the ones used by its officers and men, for operational purposes, in a minibus.
The Agency noted that the video is an old skit, which the Agency had disclaimed a year ago.
The Agency made this known in a statement released on Tuesday by its Director, of Media and Advocacy, Mr. Femi Babafemi.
Following a series of public enquiries, the Agency in a statement released on Saturday 21 May 2022, stated that it had established, that the video with screenshot pictures attached to the statement is a skit produced by one Mathew C. Eze who lives in the Lekki area of Lagos.
The statement posted on Tuesday partly read: “We will like to reiterate again that the confusion the controversial video has created in the minds of members of the public underscores the need for some social media content producers to show restraint, responsibility and decorum in how they misuse paraphernalia of law enforcement officers to avoid misconceptions and insinuations.
“The Agency will also like to remind those fond of this kind of indiscretion, especially the misuse of its official jackets to mislead and create false impressions, that such has consequences.”
