“Why do people out of greed form a habit of dealing in all these banned and controlled drugs? It’s killing our youths, and we will continue to go after them.”

PUNCH reported in December 2023 that the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency thwarted attempts by transnational drug traffickers to flood Nigerian communities with large quantities of assorted illicit drugs during the yuletide season.

The intercepted drugs included millions of tramadol 225mg pills, thousands of codeine syrup bottles, and bags of Canadian Loud in consignments.
