Drug Barons Funding Terrorism In Nigeria, Says Senate President

Senate President, Ahmad Lawan says drug barons are funding terrorism and banditry across Nigeria. 

According to Senator Lawan, the proceeds of the illegal drug trade are used to purchase arms and ammunitions for terror groups like Boko Haram as well as bandits and kidnappers.

The Lawmaker stated this when Chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, Brigadier-General Buba Marwa, paid a visit to his office on Thursday at the National Assembly in Abuja.

Lawan said drug traffickers have made Nigeria a major transit route, stressing that this has aided the increase of criminality around the nation.
