The National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) state Commandant Mr Aliyu Adole, on Monday in Gombe disclosed that so far the agency has arrested 25 suspects and seized 122.78kg of banned drugs since January.
He said, that the agency convicted 20 of the suspects and sentenced them to various prison terms, while five were still in custody.
While speaking he said;“Within this period, we removed 122.78kg drugs from circulation. In March alone, we recovered 92.39kg compared with February when we had 543g.”
Adole called on all stakeholders to join in the fight against drug abuse.
“I am advising you to talk to your children. If you do not talk to them, somebody outside the family will talk to them and it will be dangerous. Politicians have their children in high institutions of learning; if you allow your children to follow bad politicians, you will be the losers”.
