The Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Nigeria Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Buba Marwa, has said that tackling drug abuse would lead to a decline in the rate of criminality in the country.
Marwa made this known in an interactive session with religious leaders and the road transport union officials in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital. According to him, Nigerians should take the war against drug abuse as a battle to save our children and women, and ultimately our society and the country at large
The NDLEA boss said, “We need to secure our country from the menace of drug abuse by working together. For us in the new NDLEA, this is a fight to finish. We can’t allow this country to be destroyed by criminalities. All those involved in this criminal act must be fished out and punished. Nobody in his right sense will take up arms to kidnap, rape, and kill innocent people. Therefore, if we are able to tackle the issue of drug abuse, most of the security challenges the nation is facing now would have been solved. We also need to take this war as a battle to save our children and women, and ultimately our society and the country at large,” he said.
