The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has called for more proactive measures towards curbing drug abuse among tertiary institution students in the country.

Mr Ndubuisi Agabus, the Keffi Area Commander, NDLEA, Nasarawa State, made the call in an interview with newsmen in Keffi on Thursday.

Agabus, an Assistant Commander of Narcotics, said that drug abuse among tertiary institution students in the area had become highly worrisome.

He said that the agency had made tremendous efforts towards tackling drug abuse, addiction and trafficking in the area.

“We have made several arrests, conducted sensitisation programmes and rehabilitated many drug addicts, yet the consumption of illicit drugs is still on the increase.

“The situation requires more proactive and collaborative actions by stakeholders, we need to work together in the interest of the future generation,” he said.

The NDLEA official said that parents had very critical roles to play in the campaign against drug abuse and addiction among youths.

The commander further stated that the agency was making efforts to collaborate with the management of tertiary institutions in the area to organise anti drug sensitization campaigns.(www.naija247news.com).
