The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Abuja, said it had arrested 205 drug users between January and July 2020.

180 of them are men and 25 are women.

The chairman of the commission in Abuja, Lawan Hamisu, told NAN on Monday that they had seized 3,546,632 drugs during the period.

The drugs seized included cannabis leaves, cocaine, Tramadol, Exol, Rophynol and Diazepam.

The commission’s activities declined in April as a result of the curfew in Abuja, according to Lawan Hamisu.

“That is why the number of arrests has dropped but it is still not pleasant.”
