NDLEA: Drug Abuse Catalyst to Kidnappings And Insurgencies





The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, Kogi Command, on Tuesday said drug abuse is the catalyst to all the insurgencies and kidnappings ravaging society today.



The State Commander of the agency, Umar Yahuza, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Lokoja, stressing that the agency was focused on reducing the circulation of illicit drugs to forestall usage.

Yahuza explained that with a reduction in the circulation of illicit drugs, the usage and dependence level would drop, which would in the long run reduce vices like insurgency, kidnapping, and others in the society.

“All the problems of insurgency and kidnapping are drug-induced because it won’t be possible to carry out kidnapping without the use of illicit drugs.

“But we can stop insurgency, kidnapping, and other vices if we collectively fight against the menace of drug abuse and trafficking in the country,” he said.

According to him, the command had put strategies in place to arrest drug abusers and traffickers as well as seize all illicit drugs being peddled in and through Kogi.

He urged the state government, community and religious leaders, and other stakeholders to join the NDLEA to successfully fight drug abuse and trafficking.
