  • Drug abuse rate among girls worrisome – NDLEA
  • The National Drug Law Enforcement
    Agency in Yobe has described as
    ‘worrisome’ increase in the number of
    females abusing drugs in the state .
    Commander of the agency in the state ,
    Mr Apeh Reuben, said in Damaturu on
    Monday that young girls between the
    ages of 15 and 35 were increasingly
    involved in drugs consumption and
    abuse.
    “ Some of the females consume and
    abuse multiple drugs, especially
    Tramadol, Amphetamine and
    Cannabis, ” he said,
    He called for a partnership with Yobe
    government to curtail the ugly trend in
    the interest of the individuals and the
    state .
    “ This will have devastating
    consequences on the future of the state
    if adequate measures are not taken at
    the right time” he warned .
    Speaking on the constraints of his
    agency in the state , Reuben said
    inadequacy of vehicles and
    accommodation for addicts being
    counseled, were their major challenges .
    He said the addicts were being
    accommodated in rented apartments,
    stressing that ensuring the welfare of
    such people, was paramount .
    Reuben said in spite of the challenges ,
    his command was doing its best , adding
    that last year , no fewer than 98 drug
    dependent persons had been counseled .
    According to him , the agency is taking
    the campaign against drug abuse to
    schools in line with this year’s theme of
    the international day against drug
    abuse, which was celebrated on June 23.
    “ The theme , tagged ‘Listen First to the
    children’ is the first step to assist
    children and youth to grow healthy and
    safe from drug abuse.
    Recently Senator Gbenga Ashafa also
    raised the alarm over the number of
    youths now hooked on various types of
    drugs and cough syrups.
    In an interview , Ashafa said that it was
    worrisome that girls were now
    matching boys in abusing drugs.
    The senator went on to say that if
    nothing was done to check the spate of
    drug abuse among youths , there might
    be no sane youths left to employ when
    the Federal Government eventually
    solved the problem of unemployment .
