According to a report by The PUNCH, the civil rights advocacy group, Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, on Sunday, expressed dissatisfaction over the discriminatory parade of suspects by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency.

HURIWA, in a statement by its National Coordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko, drummed solidarity with the war on drug barons by the NDLEA. It, however, urged the hierarchy of NDLEA to review the continued illegal parading of drug suspects yet to be convicted by any court of law, while the Agency leaves certain ‘sacred cows’ unparaded.

The group recalled that the anti-narcotics agency over the weekend raided the Lagos Island area and paraded seven drug suspects, claiming it recovered 5,862kg illicit drugs including ‘Loud and Codeine’.

Also, according to reports, no fewer than five persons were killed and several others injured when NDLEA officers opened fire in the Partey area of Lagos Island.

Days earlier, the NDLEA officials also arrested and paraded singers Zinoleesky and Mohbad after a midnight raid on their residence in Lagos. This was weeks after the Agency arrested fast-rising skit maker, De General, after a raid on his residence in Lagos.

But HURIWA said the NDLEA has refused to parade narcotics suspect, Abba Kyari, with the 25kg cocaine, $61,400 and other exhibits recovered from the Deputy Commissioner of Police.
