The Adeboruwa of Igbogbo Kingdom, Oba Semiudeen Kasali, has commended officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, for uncovering a warehouse where drugs valued at N194bn were found in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State.
Kasali, in a statement, said it was gratifying to know that the military and para-military men in Nigeria were doing their best to sanitise the nation of all forms of criminality.
He said, “The recent smooth operation by the gallant officers of the NDLEA attests to how professional the agency is in investigating and unraveling such ignoble businesses by people. We equally applaud the support of the international agency that made the NDLEA achieve the feat with ease.
The monarch, who also commended the people of Ikorodu, urged residents and indigenes to desist from engaging in any form of crime to make money.
“Our youths must avoid partaking in any unpatriotic activity that could threaten the peace of the community and the nation at large,” he said.
Kasali said the noble character of the people of Igbogbo Kingdom and Ikorodu at large should not be tarnished by people from other tribes and nationalities.
