The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency has warned farmers in Gombe State against inducing labourers with hard drugs to work for them.
Commandant of the agency in the state, Aliyu Adole, gave the warning while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria on Friday.
He noted that investigation reveals that some farmers were in the habit of adulterating milk and pudding with drugs before giving them to labourers employed to work in their farms to enable them work tirelessly.
Adole said that most of their victims were between the ages of 15 and 30 irrespective of gender.
He said “I want to seize this opportunity to warn perpetrators of such act that the NDLEA will not leave any stone unturned to ensure they face the wrath of the law.
“Those found wanting will be prosecuted, therefore desist from such act.”
