According to him, the conviction of two other defendants in the case shows that the matter will be treated with the urgency it deserves.
“They have been convicted and jailed those two, I think that is a pointer that this is a case that will not last long,” Marwa said.
He added that the NDLEA has the cooperation on the matter, adding that the agencies have full confidence in the judiciary.
Two weeks ago, a Federal High Court in Abuja convicted and sentenced two co-defendants in a suit filed by the NDLEA against Kyari over an alleged drug deal to two years imprisonment.
