Nigeria anti-drug agency the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency through its spokesperson Mitchell Ofoyeju said they were taking covert steps to monitor specific Nigerian celebrities moving in and out of the country but he did not reveal the names of such celebrities.
Ofoyeju said, “We have some people we are working on but it is not for us to say who is under our surveillance. The purpose of the investigation will become defeated. We have some credible leads that we are working on.
“This is not to say the NDLEA is relaxing its surveillance on ordinary Nigerians or other categories of travelers to ensure the eradication of drug trafficking in this country.
“You need to remember that the agency is an elite organisation that works basically through investigation. We don’t totally discountenance rumors but such must have some leads we can work on.”
He added that the increasing successes of the agency’s war against drug trafficking was the main reason the United States removed Nigeria’s name from the list of “drug major states.

Ofoyeju said “Everybody must be subject to the law of the land. Investigations that have to do with celebrities could take a long time depending on the mode of operation. It is a gradual process.”
