The commander explained that tramadol is an opiate drug similar to heroin in its addictive nature.

He expressed regrets that the drug had  become the most abused psychoactive substance, especially among youths in the state.

“The youths, unaware of its destructive effects, have made it a drug of choice for euphoric pleasure.

“Hardly can you search  a commercial motorcyclist, tricycle operator or  driver  and not recover some tablets of high dose, abused and banned tramadol,” Ethan said.

The NDLEA official  said that with the large seizure, a significant percentage of  the drug  would be out of circulation during the Yuletide in the state.

He also noted that crime rate would drop in the state as drug abuse had been identified as a major contributory factor in the perpetration of crimes.

Ethan  admonished the youths  to steer clear of drugs and other psychotropic substances to enable them to live meaningful lives.

He said the suspect would be taken to court as soon as investigation was concluded on the matter.

The suspect, however, declined comments when approached by newsmen, insisting his lawyer must be present for him to speak on the incident.
