The National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), on Sunday, said it
arrested 104 suspects involved in various drug related offences in
Taraba between January and June.
Mr Yusuf Kwajafa, the agency commandant in the state, told newsmen in
Jalingo that the suspects were arrested with assorted illicit drugs at
various locations across the state.
Kwajafa disclosed that a total of 1031.1kg of cannabis saliva and
55.8kg of psychotropic substances were seized during the period.
“The figures would have been higher if not for logistic problem.
“Lack of facilities for counseling and lack of office accommodation
were some of the factors militating against effective performance of the
agency in the state.’’
Kwajafa appealed to relevant authorities to assist the command with a rehabilitation center.
He said that such centre would save parents of convicted drug addict
the cost and risk of travelling to Yola in Adamawa State to visit their
children and wards.
