The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, (NDLEA), has warned skit makers to stop using its logo and jackets in their production.
The warning is contained in a statement issued by the NDLEA Director of Media and Advocacy, Mr Femi Babafemi, on Tuesday in Abuja.
Babafemi warned that those fond of the indiscretion of misusing its official jackets to mislead and create false impressions, to be ready for the consequences
He was reacting to a trending video of some people wearing red jackets similar to the ones used by officers and men of the agency, which the Agency had disclaimed a year ago.
The spokesman said that the agency had in a well-publicised statement on May 21, 2022, stated that the video was a skit produced by one Mathew C Eze who lived in the Lekki area of Lagos.
“A year after, the video has returned to the social media space, a development that has led to several enquiries from concerned members of the public on the authenticity of the content of the video.
“We will like to reiterate again that the confusion the controversial video has created in the minds of members of the public underscores the need for some social media content producers to show restraint.
“Also, they need to show responsibility and decorum in how they misuse paraphernalia of law enforcement officers, to avoid misconceptions and insinuations,” he said.
