    NDLEA intercepts illicit drugs valued at N20m in Sokoto

    Sokoto state command of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) Friday intercepted  2.5 tonnes of rohypnol with a market value of over N20 million.

    Misbahu Idris, the state NDLEA commander dropped this hint saying that the illicit drugs seizures were recorded by the command in the last 12 months.

    According to him, the command had within the period under review, seized 200 kg of cannabis sativa, as well as 450 kg of assorted cough syrups with codeine, lamenting that more than 45% consumption of illicit drugs was recorded in the north-west.

    His words: “This obnoxious development is taking its toll on the most productive segment of the society, the youth.

    “The youth are regrettable more vulnerable and unfortunately they are the future leaders of the country.

    “The earlier this ugly trend is reversed, the better for the future of Nigeria; otherwise, the consequences will be colossal, ‘’Idris said.
    The NDLEA boss said the Nigerian society was being silently attacked by the drug pandemic.

    He said, “Time to act is now and curbing the drugs menace is a collective responsibility of all the stakeholders.
