The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, has said that no N4.5 billion was padded into its proposed 2022 budget.

The Agency said President Muhamadu Buhari magnanimously approved the construction of barracks for NDLEA over a period of four years starting from 2022 fiscal year.

Investigations have confirmed that the amount in question is indeed for the construction of NDLEA barracks but typographically inputted as ‘police barracks’ in one of the documents attached to the proposal from the Budget Office.

The typo error has since been corrected and the budget cleared on Tuesday by the Senate Committee, it said.
