The governor, who was reacting to an address by the state commander of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) when he said it was sad that drug abuse in Borno State has risen to an unprecedented level, cutting across age, sex and various socio-economic backgrounds.

Governor Shettima, said most of the Boko Haram insurgents arrested were found with tramol and psychotropic drugs, adding that, some of the boxes included weapons, and drugs of various kinds.

It is recalled that the 10-man committee inaugurated by the governor was informed by his efforts to curb drug abuse in the state by complementing the efforts of the NDLEA in the fight against illicit drugs in Borno State.
