NDLEA Chairman, Mohammed Mustapha Abdalla revealed this while destroying seized illicit substances in Maiduguri.

Abdalla said drug tests may be included in premarital screenings due to the increase in the rate of drug addiction among girls and married women.

He revealed that the target of illicit trafficked drugs which hitherto used to be among the male youthful population was fast expanding to now include teenage girls, young women and old married women.

“As an extension of the proposed Drug Integrity Test Policy for the public servants, the agency is considering partnering with religious leaders to make drug testing a prerequisite for marriages in churches and mosques as the case for HIV/AIDS”, he said.


According to him, the essence of the event was to ensure that all seized illicit drugs were put out of circulation, adding that 19,234.58 kilograms of illicit substances including controlled prescription drugs, Cannabis Sativa, cocaine, and heroin were destroyed.


Elsewhere in Ogun State, there was drama after members of the Nigeria Police stripped some young men off their clothes in the middle of a busy road and labeled them ‘Yahoo Boys’ for driving Benz.
