The chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Mohammed Mustapha Abdalla, has proposed that drug tests be carried out on single ladies before they get married.

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

“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,” he said.
