NDLEA exposes Abuja community where hard drugs are sold like ‘pure’ water

The National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has exposed a community in Abuja where hard drugs are sold like regular food items.

NDLEA carried out a sensitisation exercise against the use of hard drugs in the community known as Abattoir in Abuja.

The sensitisation came on the heels of an investigation revealed Abattoir, located close to an animal market in the Karu axis of Abuja by the boundary between the FCT and Nassarwa state, is a major hub for the sales of illicit drugs like Crack, Codeine, Molly, Tramadol, Refnol, Rochi, Arizona, Loud (Canadian and Ghanaian loud).

During a road walk in the community, the Abuja Command of the NDLEA displayed various banners and placards that read, “Friends Don’t Let Friends Do Drugs,” “Spot the sign, break the chain,” “Your Potential is Limitless Without Drugs,” “Love Yourself: Break Free from Substance Abuse,” “Say no to drug trafficking,” among others.

During the road walk, NDLEA FCT command’s officer in charge of sensitisation, Nduka Augustine, said the dangers of getting involved in drug use, drug trafficking and drug peddling are far too enormous.
