Why Nigerians must fight drug trafficking - NDLEA
drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Alhaji Ahmadu Giade, has said it is in the interest of the nation that Nigerians should support the campaign against drug trafficking.
Giade spoke in Abuja at a media briefing to mark this year’s International Day Against drug Abuse and Illicit drug Trafficking. The NDLEA Chairman decried how Nigerian drug traffickers have ruined the nation’s image.
He said: “Nigerian drug pushers are giving us a bad image. Today, you see these criminals trafficking drugs from Nigeria to Guinea Bissau and other parts of the world. It is a great challenge we are facing and I think we will address it.”
Giade noted that though the nation has been delisted by the United States from a group of drug trafficking nations, he added that there is need to intensify efforts and collaborate with relevant stakeholders to sustain the drug control status.
He said the agency, in the past four months, arrested 3,028 drug suspects and destroyed about 20,204.477kilogrammes of forfeited narcotics.
The NDLEA chief listed broken marriages, unemployment and accidents as some of the defects of illicit drugs.
