Mr Yakubu Kibo, Adamawa Commander of National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) said on Thursday that the rate of supply and abuse of drugs in the state had reduced significantly.
Kibo told the Nigeria News Agency in Yola that this development was as a result of the commitment of people in the fight against drug abuse.
He cited as an example, the seizure of one ton of cannabis sativa and 1.3 tons of tramadol in two separate operations, which was made possible as a result of cooperation of the people.
Kibo said that the command, in a joint operation with other security agencies, arrested 52 youth at a hide-out known as ‘Semi-Sambisa’.
“Those we found with drugs have been charged to court, while the rest were given quick intervention counseling and handed over to their parents,” he said.
Kabo, however, listed inadequate fund, dearth of staff and logistic challenges as some of the major problems militating against their operations.
He explained that the command had only two operational vehicles serving the seven area offices, as such embarking on operations frequently was very difficult.
The Commander appealed to government for more financial assistance for the agency to rid the society of drug addicts and safeguard the future of the country.

“We have received commitments from Borno, Katsina and Adamawa States to grant us 50 hectares of land.
“Resettlement of 500 households, totalling 3,000 people in each resettlement city and a transformation of lives and dignity restored,’’ he said.
He noted that the commission was at an advanced stage with public and private investors to deliver on this goal.
“Zamfara has been chosen to be part of this housing development project which will ultimately complement the laudable efforts your government has made with Ruga Project.
“As I mentioned earlier, our major priority is our people that are displaced and if Zamfara Government approved, we will build 500 households resettlement fully equipped with facilities.
“We will also provide livelihood support schemes linked to clean water and health infrastructure; as phase one is attached to hygiene maintenance, financial inclusion and the creation of jobs.
“I will like to use this medium to obtain your approval for the allocation of 50 hectares of land in a safe zone, as a follow up to earlier request.
“The approval and partnership with the commission will be of great encouragement to our investors,’’ Mohammed said.

“As soon as the investigation is completed, the suspected officer will be charged to Court for appropriate action,” Nguroje said.
He warned that officers and men were given riffles to protect lives, not to take lives of innocent citizens and should always discharge their duty within the rule of law and to respect human rights.
Nguroje also appealed to the citizens of the state to desist from taking laws into their hands, as the Command was making efforts to protect their lives and properties.
Alhaji Idi Amin, the Chairman of Maiha Local Government Council, expressed dismay over the incident and described it as “unacceptable”.
Amin assured the family of the deceased, Arabo Tambajam, 20, and the people of Maiha town that the local government council would follow the case until justice was done.

Council demands in-depth probe of Adamawa communal clash
The Adamawa Muslim Council has called on security agencies to conduct in-depth investigation without fear or favour into the recent communal clash in Tingno community of Lamurde Local Government Area of the state.

He however commended the effort of the state government and the committee for taking good care of the victims.
Jika said only justice, fairness and equity could end the recurrent crisis and not the apparent bias being demonstrated against the victims.

He added that seven victims are currently receiving treatment, while the remaining were discharged.
