NDLEA Commander Egwunwoke Silvia disclosed this in an interview with the Media in Minna.
Silvia said that about 649.999 kilogrammes of solid drugs and 22.258 litres of liquid drugs were seized in different parts of the state within the period.
She said out of those arrested, 48 were convicted and 51 sent for counselling while the remaining cases were pending in courts.
The state commander said the seized drugs included cannabis, exol-5, nitrazepan, diazepam, rotrpynol and crack cocaine, while the liquid drugs were cough syrups with codine and chloroform.

She urged parents to always monitor the activities of their wards even as she advised the youths to be wary of bad companies.

Awesome blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers? I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm totally confused .. Any recommendations? Many thanks! capital one card login in
