”Reports showed that hotels are increasingly becoming dens where drug offenders use to run their illicit businesses.

“Such a thing will never be allowed to escalate because the NDLEA in the state is ready to bring offenders at all costs to face the wrath of the law,” he said.

Also speaking, NDLEA Deputy State Commander (DSC), operations and training, Mr Halilu Hamidu said that hotel owners can play a major role in curbing the menace.
