According to him, the agency does not recruit its officers secretly, even as he lamented that many desperate Nigerians had been victims of such fraudsters.

He said: “We are not recruiting yet. If we want to do so, we do it openly. The public should beware of fraudsters claiming to be NDLEA recruiting agents.

“Unfortunately, many people have been duped by these fraudsters. Some victims claimed they paid between N30,000 and N70,000 to them.

“People should always ask questions from those in authority before applying for anything.”

In a related development, the NDLEA has arraigned four Mexicans and five Nigerians for allegedly operating a laboratory for the illicit production of hard drugs (methamphetamine) in Asaba, Delta State.

The accused persons were brought before Justice A.O. Faji of the Federal High Court, Asaba to answer to a five-count charge of conspiracy to form and operate a Drug Trafficking Organizations (DTO) to process and export methamphetamine.
