President Bola Tinubu has ordered an investigation into the alleged killing of a two-year-old boy, Ivan Omhonrina, during a raid by the Nigerian Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) operatives in Okpanam, Delta State, last week.
Special Adviser to the President on Special Duties, Communications and Strategy, Dele Alake, disclosed this in a statement on Saturday.
He stated that Tinubu had directed the NDLEA management to quickly conclude the investigation.
The President described the incident as unacceptable, adding that those behind must be unravelled and brought to justice.
“Ivan did not deserve to die that way. We must ensure the incident did not end like that and that what happened to Ivan does not happen to any other person again,” Tinubu was quoted as saying.
