NDLEA Decries Youths’ Involvemen­t In Drug Traffickin­g

- From Lawrence Njoku, Enugu

THE National Drug Law Enforcemen­t Agency ( NDLEA) has expressed worries over youths’ involvemen­t in drug traffickin­g and warned that Akanu Ibiam Internatio­nal Airport, Enugu, was a wrong route for illicit traffickin­g.

The agency said it would ensure a drug- free society.

NDLEA’S Commander of Narcotics, Akanu Ibiam Internatio­nal Airport, Rosana Nnodim, stated this in Enugu, in reaction to the recently held Internatio­nal Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Traffickin­g.

She said until the closure of the internatio­nal wing of the airport in 2019, the agency made drug seizures worth 346.267 kilogramme­s.

Nnodim said NDLEA Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Brig Gen Mohamed Buba Marwa ( rtd.) was poised to reposition the agency, especially, with the launch of War Against Drug Abuse ( WADA).

She said WADA was part of the commitment to address drug problems holistical­ly.
