Single Ladies to undergo drug test before marriage- NDLEA Boss

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has proposed to carry out drug tests for single ladies before getting married.

NDLEA Chairman, Mohammed Mustapha Abdalla, made this known on Friday, August 21, while destroying seized illicit substances in Maiduguri.

Abdalla said drug tests may be included in premarital screenings due to the increase in rate of cannabis sativa, cocaine and heroin  addiction among women in the country.

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”.
