VIDEO: Rat strays into NDLEA exhibit room, ‘gets high on cannabis’


A rat has reportedly strayed into an exhibit storage room for cannabis in one of the commands of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).


Femi Babafemi, NDLEA spokesman, shared a video of the animal via his Twitter handle on Monday.


He said the rat began to misbehave some minutes after it strayed into the exhibit room on Friday.


The rat, which according to Babafemi was under the influence of cannabis, is seen spinning repeatedly.


The spokesman added that there is a message in the situation, asking Nigerians to shun mind-altering substances.


“Stray rat gets high on C/S: So this rat 🐀 on Friday strayed into the exhibit room where cannabis was stored in one of @ndlea_nigeria commands and few minutes after, it began to misbehave,” Babafemi wrote.


“Need I say more? The message is clear. #SayNoToMindAlteringSubstances#”

Cannabis is currently outlawed in Nigeria.


Though there are advocates for it to be legalised, the agency has said the risks outweigh the benefits.


The NDLEA had recently disclosed that though it is banned, cannabis is the most abused illicit drug in the country and it is currently being used by at least 10.6 million Nigerians.
