Metamphetamine: NDLEA, Lagos To Conduct Soil Test

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency and the Lagos State Government say they will carry out soil and water tests in areas where illegal drug manufacturing factories are discovered in the state.

A statement by the NDLEA on Monday quoted the Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, as saying this.

Fashola said, “Drug Control is the first line of defence against insecurity and crime. The new discovery of clandestine laboratories for methamphetamine production in Lagos is the first alarm of increasing insecurity in the state.

“Armed robbery, rape and other violent crimes are often committed under the influence of drugs. We must first fight drugs in order to fight crime.

“At this time of high security challenges, drug control should be a high priority issue. Every society that wants to promote peace and security must fight drugs.”

The NDLEA Chairman, Ahmadu Giade, who raised the alarm on the proliferation of clandestine laboratories for the manufacture of methamphetamine, stressed the need for collaboration against drug cartels.
