The exercise also focused to enhance public enlightenment, mobilise participation and community engagement in the fight against drug abuse in the state.

“The government observed with concern rampant cases of drug abuse in society. It is disturbing the rate of drug abuse among youth and women,” Sule-Garo was quoted as saying in the statement.

The Commissioner urged the youths to shun drug abuse and contribute towards building a drug-free society.

The statement also quoted Ibrahim Abdul, NDLEA Commander in the state, as saying that the campaign against drug abuse was a collective responsibility.
