NDLEA SETS UP SPECIAL SQUADS AGAINST SALE, CONSUMPTION OF DRUGS IN FCT

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, has inaugurated special squads to curtail open sales and consumption of illicit drugs in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

The Commander of Narcotics NDLEA, FCT Command, Kabiru Tsakuba, explained that the special squad was set up to dislodge open sales of notorious drug joints, arrest drug dealers, seize drugs and prosecute of offenders.

According to the commander, the FCT is unique because it has an international airport where some flights come directly from drug source countries and others from East African countries where hard drugs, such as cocaine and heroin, could be accessed.

He also added that some may find their way into the town, in spite of the interdiction efforts of the NDLEA officers at the airport.

“There are individuals that can afford to buy any kind of drugs of their desire or choice without having to bother in any way.

“These, among many reasons, therefore, create veritable opportunities for drug peddlers, like in other cities of the world, to trade in these criminal substances.

“Having said this, it is important to note that the command has been trying its best to ensure a drug-free environment in the FCT,” Tsakuwa said.
