The Na­tional Drug Law En­force­ment Agency (NDLEA) in Anam­bra State has ar­rested 10 women in its fight against il­licit drugs in the state within the last six months.

The state com­man­der of the agency, Sule Mo­modu, made the dis­clo­sure re­cently in Awka,

Mo­modu said the sus­pects were among 156 drug traf­fick­ers ar­rested by the agency in Anam­bra State be­tween Jan­uary and June.

He said the agency also im­pounded three ve­hi­cles used by the sus­pects to trans­port large quan­ti­ties of In­dian hemp from Delta to Anam­bra State.

He said a to­tal of 922.5 kilo­grammes of In­dian hemp was im­pounded in the last six months by the agency.

Sule Mo­modu ap­pealed to Gov­er­nor Wil­lie Obiano to help in build­ing the re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion cen­tre he had ap­proved in Anam­bra State.

De­scrib­ing the fight against drug traf­fick­ing and abuse of il­licit drugs in Nige­ria as to­tal, the NDLEA state com­man­der paid trib­ute to the fallen heroes who sac­ri­ficed their lives to create a drug free so­ci­ety, adding that their sac­ri­fices were not in vain as the fight must be won.
