*You Risk Losing Your Property to FG
THE National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, has warned property owners to desist from allowing anyone to use their property as vending points for cannabis sativa, better known as Indian Hemp and other drugs.
The agency’s Oyo state command gave the warning in Ibadan on Friday while addressing Muslim faithfully during Jumat services held at the Oja Oba central Mosque in the state capital.
The command’s Assistant Commander, Toyin Ajanaku, who issued the warning, told worshippers that anyone caught harboring venders of Indian hemp and other drugs in his or her premises now stands to lose same to the federal government.
According to him, the warning became imperative as available information indicates that most houses in the township not only harbour drug vendors but also allow them to be used same as vending points.
“We are here to advise you on the implications of taking hard drugs and harbouring sellers for you to desist and ban those using your premises in transacting drug business.
“Drug abuse is responsible for insecurity in the country and we urge you to desist and report those engaging in drug abuse to the NDLEA for peace to reign in the country,” Ajanaku said.
Ajanaku, who pointed out that the use of hard drugs is taking a toll on the country’s security, pointed out that the federal government is willing to do everything under the law to check the spate of insecurity by going after all its causatives.
According to him, most crimes being perpetrated in the country are carried out under the influence of hard drugs.
NDLEA, he vowed, will continue to do its best in dealing with those engaging in illicit drugs.
