NDLEA: Nigerian Single Ladies To Undergo Drug Tests Before Marriage

ndleaThe chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcing Agency, Mohammed Mustapha Abdalla, had made a recent revelation on the proposal made to carry out drug test on single ladies before they get married.

According to Abdalla, the drug tests may be included in the premarital screenings due to the increase in rate of drug addiction among girls and married women.

He said;

“As an extension of the proposed Drug Integrity Test Policy for the public servants, the agency is considering partnering with religious leaders to make drug testing a prerequisite for marriages in churches and mosques as the case for HIV/AIDS”.

According to him, the essence of this is to ensure that all seized illicit drugs were put out of circulation, adding that 19,234.58 kilograms of illicit substances including controlled prescription drugs, cannabis sativa, cocaine and heroin were destroyed.
