Nigeria: NDLEA destroys 110,542 tons of Indian hemp in Ondo
London, September 14, 2018 (AltAfrica)-The Ondo State Command of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, has destroyed hard drugs weighing about 110,542 tons.
The agency’s chief who was represented by his chief of staff, Femi Oloruntoba, decried the increasing rate at which hard drugs are being cultivated in the state, saying that it is becoming a huge concern not only for the agency but the country at large.
“The use of cannabis remains high in the state because of availability and affordability.
“Ondo State remains one of the six states in Nigeria where cannabis is cultivated in large quantities. As a result of cannabis plantations, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find virgin forests,” he said.
