The Commander, National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, Mr. Sule Momodu, has urged students at all levels, especially undergraduates, to shun in-take of hard drugs and concentrate on their studies, noting that drug abuse can lead to brain damage, memory loss, madness, as well as all forms of crime and illegal activity.
The NDLEA boss who stated this at the command's headquarters, Awka, while receiving members of the National Drug Free Club, National Open University of Nigeria, NOUN, Chapter, who called on him, charged the students to avoid patronizing drug peddlers, noting that the long arm of the law would not spare anyone caught in the act.
He said the command had resolved to deal decisively with those who indulged in drug related offences, noting that the agency was determined in instituting Drug Free Clubs in all tertiary institutions in Anambra State.
Mr. Momodu said the club would be managed by student volunteers who would be ready to take the message of anti-drug abuse round the campuses. This is even as he thanked the NOUN Drug Free Club members for the visit and pledged to support them.
