The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has warned students against being involved in drug abuse, saying no drug can enhance their academic performance.
Mr Mohammad Ibrahim, the NDLEA Commander, Kwara Command, gave the advice, particularly to students of the University of Ilorin, while speaking with newsmen on Tuesday at Unilorin.
According to him, hard drugs do not promote the performance of students in any examination, as insinuated by some persons.
He noted that the small perceived feelings from the hard drugs might later hurt such a student, stressing that students must resist all forms of pressure that can lead them to drug abuse.
“Part of what we are doing is to enhance the working ability of the patrol teams to control the state and also to put more officers on the road to intercept substances coming into the state”.
“NAFDAC is in charge of the licit drugs, while the focus of the NDLEA is on illicit drugs and psychoactive substances, which include cannabis, cocaine and heroin. These are substances completely banned by the law,” he added
