NDLEA arrests 48 Katsina students for drug abuse
« on: November 02, 2017, 10:38:20 PM »


The Katsina State Command of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency said it arrested 48 students between January and September this year for drug abuse.

The agency added that between January 2015 and this year, it arrested 1,386 persons aged between 18 and 35 for allegedly engaging in drug abuse.

The NDLEA Assistant Commander in Katsina, Dechi David, said this on Thursday during a campaign against drug abuse, child molestation and barracks sanitation, by the wife of the Inspector-General of Police, Mrs. Asma’u  Idris, who doubles as the President, Police Officers’ Wives Association.

The NDLEA boss said, “The recent global outcry and attention given to drug abuse is sequel to the escalating magnitude with which the monster plagues the world and this gives cause for alarm.

“Abuse of any drug has serious adverse consequences that affect the user, his family and the community.”

Idris noted that Kano and Katsina states ranked high on the list of states with the highest incidences of drugs abuse.

She said this was what informed POWA’s decision to begin the campaign against drug abuse in the North.

She advocated the launch of the programme in schools across the country  to spread the information on the menace of drug abuse.

The Katsina State Police Commissioner, Besen Gwana, who was also present on the occasion, lauded POWA for the campaign against child molestation, arguing that it complements the contents and purpose of the Child Rights Act.

Gwana said, “Good moral upbringing of our children is a necessary precondition for the sustenance and development of our families, communities and societies.

“The campaign against drug abuse especially for the youth is imperative as drugs tend to embolden them to commit all manners of crime in our communities.”
