National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA boss, Buba Marwa, has said 4.5 million people in Lagos state are involved in illicit drugs.

He said the state accounts for 30 percent of the total number of drug abusers in the country.
“In the country, an estimate of 15 million people belong to one or more aspects of illicit drug dealing. This means about 4.5 million people in Lagos state are into illicit drugs”, he said.
