FEC approves construction of barracks for NDLEA personnel

Federal Executive Council (FEC) has approved over four billion naira for the construction of barracks to accommodate personnel of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).

Disclosing this in a briefing with newsmen after the FEC meeting, Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, said the project became necessary because of the unprecedented threats and attacks on personnel, officers, men and other ranks of the agency.

According to Mr. Malami, two contracts were awarded to two companies to carry out the project.

He said the blocks which consist of many flats, cost two point two billion naira to the first contractor and the sum of two point eight billion naira to the second contractor.
