    Good Job ! this Time around NDLEA. But your error has almost caused a Nigerian Comedian – BABASUWE his career , Major brands are reluctant to give him jobs and endorsements because of the stain your Organisation has put on his career . Holding him hostage for more than three weeks despite finding no single substance on him.

    It took the effort of Late human right activist _ BAMIDELE ATURU and well meaning Nigerians to get him freed. Yet you did not apologize, meaning you do same to any innocent Nigerian.

    Please invest in technology and high density scanners , which can located any substance hidden in any part of the body or object to avoid this kind of irreparable career damaging error NDLEA committed in BABASUWE’s case.

    However , NDLEA has not also paid BABASUWE his N25 million naira damages as ordered by the high court after it became obvious you made an error, neither has the organisation put out a public apology to him.
