                                      INTRODUCTION

1.1     Background to the Study

Nigeria is currently batting with the issue of drug trafficking, which has not only reared its ugly head in our society but also which developed into a worldwide crisis. June 26 of every year has been set aside for celebration of United Nations International Day against drug abuse and illicit drug trafficking.

Drug abuse has led to many adverse effects, which many people are ignorant of. It disrupts relationship and human potentials. It attacks physical health, alters personalities, reduces academic performances. To crown everything up, drug abuse leads to destruction of lives and properties.
