Mohammed Ibrahim, the State Commander of NDLEA, revealed that the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, observed on 26th June each year, aims to enhance action and cooperation towards a drug-free world.

Additionally, the command extended the awareness programme to various mosques across the state, including Ilorin, Patigi, Edu, Kiama, Chikanda, Offa, Omu-Aran, and Ilesha-Baruba area commands.

At the Ilorin Sharia Court of Appeal Mosque, the prayer was led by Imam Abdul Qadir Zakariyah.

The clergy dwelled on the need to stay away from illicit drug use and self medication.

He cited the quranic verses that forbids the consumption of alcohol, illicit drugs, and gambling.

Similar programmes were held on Sunday at various churches across the state.
