Chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Buba Marwa has lamented over the pervasive abuse of (cannabis) substance in the country.
He revealed that about 10.6 million Nigerians are actively abusing the substance.

Speaking at the event, Marwa revealed that Nigeria is the highest user of cannabis globally.
He expressed that the increasing trend of drug abuse in the country is worrisome and has become an enabler of insecurity and a catalyst for terrorism.
