Again, NDLEA Warns Ekiti Youths Against Peddling Cannabis

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency has warned youths in Ekiti State
to desist from peddling cannabis. The State Commander of the NDLEA, Mr Suleiman
Jadi, gave the warning in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Thursday
in Ado-Ekiti.
He said that the agency had arrested and prosecuted more than 30 youths
since January, in the state, for peddling cannabis.
Jadi said the number arrested included men and women who indulged in
smoking, selling, cultivating or transporting cannabis.

“I am surprised and shocked with the attitude of youths in the state, in
spite of several warnings and sensitization programmes organised for them, some
are yet to desist from the illicit drug business. When most of them are caught
by my officers, they will be giving several excuses that it was as a result of
poverty, unemployment or lack of care from their parents. But I totally
disagree with their excuses, simply because there are several man- made jobs
that the youths can be productively engaged in. Drug peddling is not an ideal
and lucrative business for the youths, regardless of the situation they may
find themselves in the society,” he said.
