About 30 million Nigerians would be on drugs by by 2050 if nothing was done to check the trend, the Chairman/Chief Executive of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, Mohammed Buba Marwa, has said.
He also stated that 90 per cent of criminalities being perpetrated in Nigeria including banditry, insurgency, kidnapping and rape, were due to drug abuse.
According to him, with him in charge, the war against the menace of illicit drug trafficking, peddling and abuse “is a fight to finish.”
Marwa, according to a statement from the agency, spoke on Monday at three different fora in Port Harcourt where he met with various stakeholders.
