NDLEA alerts on new drug users tricks


The National Drug Law and Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has alerted the public on a new but desperate trend among users of hard drugs in Kano State, which involved the act of inhaling the dirty stench from gutters and pit toilets in a bid to get intoxicated at all costs.

The National Drug Law and Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has alerted the public on a new but desperate trend among users of hard drugs in Kano State, which involved the act of inhaling the dirty stench from gutters and pit toilets in a bid to get intoxicated at all costs.

The agency also said that current findings reveal that some of the drug users have resorted to the habit of sniffing bicycle solution tube, while others are engaged in the act of drinking Benzyl syrups so as to get them selves drugged, adding that the future of these young ones remains rather bleak, unless these trends are urgently addressed and immediately arrested.

The Kano State Commander of the agency, Nicholas Walter Salu, who disclosed this as part of the activities to mark the United Nations International Day against Drug Abuse and Trafficking further said that the agency has arrested a total of 558 suspects for different drug related offences in the state in the past six months.

According to him, hard drugs weighing about 2,080,849 Kilograms were seized from suspects within this period, saying the agency has also secured the conviction of 73 suspects in the last six months, while 201 suspects were successfully counseled by the command.
Barrister Salu therefore, implored the Kano State House of Assembly to enact fresh laws to tackle the new challenges as well as regulate the sales of bicycle solution tube, as one of the measures to help check the drug situation in the state.

He also appealed to those politicians, who are in the habit of dishing out drugs to youths in a bid to keep them in an apt condition to respond to troublesome situation, to have a rethink as drugs have a negative impact on society.
He charged the youths to be wary of such politicians who could lure them to hard drugs, saying the effects of drug abuse would impact directly on them and not the politicians, who are only interested in using them to attain their selfish ends.
