Meanwhile, the Chairman and Chief Executive of the Agency, Ahmadu Giade said that Nigeria is winning the drug war against all odds.

He said: “Nigeria is winning the anti-narcotic crusade against all odds. Drug cartels only abandon their drugs when the operating environment is inclement. This is a sign of effective security checks, which is good for the country.
