Addressing participants, Mr Buba Wakawa, commander of the NDLEA in Edo, stressed the need for youths and members of the public to avoid drug peddling and abuse.

He noted that the damage and dangers of engaging in illicit drug peddling and abuse could not be over emphasised.

He emphasised that drug abuse drains resources of abusers and affects them mentally and psychologically.

Wakawa explained that the UN set June 26 of every year aside to draw attention to the ills of drug peddling, trafficking and abuse.
