The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, says it has uncovered plans by some unscrupulous elements to introduce a lethal synthetic opioid, Fentanyl, which is 100 times stronger than Tramadol into the Nigerian market.

Dandal Kura Radio International gathered reports that the agency warned that the illicitly manufactured drug is capable of causing mass casualty among the youth population being targeted by the cartels.

A statement issued by Femi Babafemi, Director, Media & Advocacy, NDLEA , Abuja, said the anti-narcotics agency promised to take every step to ensure that the drug which is currently responsible for over 70% overdose deaths as well as a major contributor to fatal and nonfatal overdoses in the US is not allowed to circulate in Nigeria.

The Agency wishes to assure the public that all necessary assets have been deployed to monitor the cartels involved in this latest threat to public health with a view to frustrating their criminal plot and make them face the wrath of the law.
