Brig. Gen. Marwa who spoke in his office in Abuja on Friday when the Police Attaché at the French Embassy in Nigeria, Emmanuel Verin, led a team of French VIP trainers including Cedric B. and Christophe J. who were in the country to train a number of NDLEA officers in special operations, paid him a courtesy visit.

The NDLEA boss said: “I’ll like to appreciate the French government for its support as one of our leading partners. We have received tremendous help from France not only in terms of training but also equipment. The support was capped with my recent visit to France where we received warm reception at all the institutions visited and the training promised was promptly organized. Were grateful for that and we are looking forward to more collaboration and support.”

In his response, Verin said: We’re proud to work with NDLEA because your officers and men are very smart and professional and thats why youre getting results, hence our priority in terms of support for NDLEA is in the area of training. Our trainers who have been here to train your men are specialists and top in the field. Well do this for a very long time and were glad to work with you.”
