NDLEA in Ondo State paraded 24 suspects on Friday in Akure for their involvement in selling and using psychotropic substances like Indian hemp, cocaine and tramadol.

One of them is female.

NDLEA commander in Ondo State, Mr Kayode Raji, said the suspects were arrested during raids on black spots in the state during which 15.6kg of psychotropic substance were seized.

He added that the raids became necessary to ensure peace in the state as drug users usually constituted a nuisance to the state.

Raji advised parents to ensure that they monitored their wards properly and ensure that they kept off drug abuse.

In his remarks, Deputy Zonal Commander, Zone J of the NDLEA, Mr Andrew Idele, assured that the NDLEA would rehabilitate those arrested to ensure that they lived better lives.
