It is barely one or two weeks ago, the Togo National Television, known as TVT had televised some Nigerian drug traffickers who were caught at the Eyadema international airport, Lome- Togo, in an attempt to board flight to Europe.
Some of accused had actually swallowed much quantity of drug capsules, while some were hidden in their luggage, while some were accused of using Togo as a drug base to import drug from Thailand into Togo for onward distribution within West Africa sub-region, which would finally head to either Europe of USA.
Those drug enforcement agents who made the arrest were the faithful types, and not the greedy ones, who would have collected some dollar tips and allow those guys to part their way to Europe. Drug trafficking is a dangerous game, it cannot do Africa any good, rather it will only tarnish the image of our country’s identity
Therefore, the best way to put a stricter check on this drug trafficking, I think the European Union and the United States should intervene by telling our legal authorities to detain these drug traffickers behind prison bars, for a long period of time, at least within 30 – 40 years period.
