The Kano/Jigawa Command of Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), on Thursday, handed over 185 cartons of unregistered and expired drugs worth N200 million Naira to the National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC).

The command’s Comptroller, Suleiman Umar, who handed over the drugs to Kano State Coordinator of NAFDAC, Mr. Shaba Muhammad, said, that the drugs were seized by the command from smugglers since July to date.

Umar stated that the rate of patronage and consumption of unregistered, hard and expired drugs are of great concern due to their consequences among growing teeming youths.

He said most criminal acts are carried out under the influence of these hard drugs and vowed that the custom would continue to stop the evil practice by all means.

Umar assured that the custom service would continue to carry out its enforcement duties with utmost professionalism and caution, based on actionable intelligence information.

He equally urged members of the public to continue to cooperate with the service, so as to insulate the economy from smugglers and protect people’s health.

Responding, NAFDAC coordinator appreciated the existing synergy between his organisation and the customs service in tackling the movement of illicit drugs in the country.

“You have saved so many people from the dangers of such drugs if it had gone into circulation,” he said

Muhammad, urged the people to expose those dealing in illicit drugs in their Community to reduce high risk.

He also advised the people to patronize only registered pharmacies, to avoid consumption of expired drugs which is detrimental to their health.
