Written by on December 12, 2022

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Akwa Ibom Command, says it has arrested 60 drug suspects and secured 11 convictions in the last three months.

NDLEA Commander in Akwa Ibom, Mrs Obot Bassey, gave the figures in an interview with the Newsmen.

Bassey said that apart from the 11 convictions secured, several cases were still pending and were undergoing prosecution at different stages in court.

The commander appealed to multinational organisations, philanthropists and all individuals to join hands with the NDLEA, to reduce drug abuse and trafficking to the barest minimum in the state.

On her projection for 2023, the NDLEA commander said the command would sweep the state clean of drug trafficking and abuse.

She emphasised continued sensitisation of the public on what drug is, drug abuse and misuse.

According to her, when drug menace is curbed, insecurity will be reduced to the barest minimum. (NAN)
