Over 54 countries are in Nigeria to participate at the ongoing 31st meeting of the Heads of National Drug Law Enforcement Agencies, HONLAF, in Abuja to deliberate on strategies aimed at clamping down on the global drug trafficking scourge.


HONLAF is a subsidiary body of the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs, and the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) is leading the conversation.


The agency was unanimously elected to host the event between September 26-29, 2023, at its last edition in Nairobi, Kenya.


The Vice President, Kashim Shettima is expected at the event to represent President Bola Tinubu who is yet to return from the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York.
