The Nigerian Army and the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) are prepared to work together to combat drug misuse in Kano State.

This was stated on Thursday in Kano by Sadiq Muhammad-Maigatari, the agency’s public relations officer.

Brigadier General M. A. Sadiq, who was recently assigned as Commander 3 Brigade, Nigerian Army, paid a courtesy visit to Mr. Abubakar Idris-Ahmad, the state’s NDLEA commander, according to the statement.

Among other things, it said that Idris-Ahmad praised the Army for the visit and that a relationship like this will help bring people together while also combating issues like drug misuse, criminality, and broken families.

According to him, the state would be protected from the negative effects of substance misuse by the agency and the Army working together to create a comprehensive plan.
