NDLEA Storm Ibadan Hotels, Clubs In Search Of Drug Offenders




The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Oyo State Command, in a bid to check drug trafficking and the use and sales of abusive substances, today launched a raid into hotels and clubs in Ibadan.

This was stated by the state Commandant, Mrs Omolade Faboyede, through the agency’s Public Relations Officer {PRO} Mrs Mutiat Okuwobi, in Ibadan.

She explained that the agency started its search first in a beer palour around 8: 30 pm on Sunday in Sango area of Ibadan.

“The raid resulted in the interception of some abusive substances including 30 kegs of “Skrushy’’ drink and 20 bottles of the same drink.

“Others were ladies’ bag containing cannabis sativa, bottles of codeine syrup, and 10×1ml Pemadex Dexamethasane injection, 11 shisha pipes and its pots.

“It is worthy to note that “Skrushy” is a cocktail drink that contains mixture of different hard drugs including cannabis sativa, codeine, tramadol and watermelon to give it flavour,” she said.

According to her, the combination or mixture depends on how sophisticated the area is.

She said that the agency would still check more joints and hotels where they suspect illicit transcations are taking place.

Faboyede said the agency’s findings so far is that the sales and usage of “skrushy” drink was prominent among young adults, even ladies.

She said that such drugs including “skrushy” could result in temporary psychosis.

Faboyede cautioned drinking joints popularly known as pubs and hotels against the sales of these illicit and abusive substances.

The officer urged the media organisations in the state to supply the agency with useful information on drug peddlers.

She said that through that the agency and the public would be able to rid the society of drug addiction and its attendant crimes.
