DRUG TRAFFICKING: NDLEA Nabs 2 Suspects With Indian Hemp in Laptops
The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in Kebbi State has arrested two suspected drug dealers with 40 kilogrammes of Indian hemp hidden in 40 laptops.
The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) defines drug trafficking as the illicit global trade that deals with the cultivation, manufacture, distribution and sale of substances which are subject to drug prohibition laws. The most commonly trafficked drugs are cocaine, heroin, morphine, cannabis sativa (Indian hemp) and crystal methamphetamine. Young Nigerians keep getting arrested while attempting to traffic hard drugs such as cocaine and heroin both within and outside the country. The NDLEA commander has called on the general public to furnish the command with useful information on activities of drug dealers in their communities.
