The Abdul Samad Rabiu Africa Initiative (ASR Africa) has donated 25 operational vehicles to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) to boost its operations across Nigeria.

The donation to the agency is drawn from the ASR Africa security sector support grant, which is a security intervention initiative targeted at providing critical assistance to the agency to boost its operational reach and capacity.

ASR Africa had earlier announced the support grant for the armed forces and other security agencies as its aid for security operations across the country.

Beneficiaries of the grant include NDLEA; Nigerian navy; air force; army; the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC); the Nigerian Customs Service; Nigerian Immigration Service; Department of Secret Services (DSS), and the Nigerian Correctional Service.

Udoh thanked the NDLEA for its support in ensuring the speedy realisation of the project, adding that the operational vehicles would assist the agency in the fulfillment of its mandate in the war against drug-related crimes in Nigeria.
