 www.odogwublog.com reports that no fewer than two hundred (200) people mostly students joined the road show organized by National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) to mobilize the society against illicit drugs.
The road walk, with the theme: “Listen First”, was to mark the 2017 United Nations World Day Against Illicit drugs usually marked June 26th every year
. The show  thrilled members of the society as some of the participants carried placards with different inscriptions such as, “Save this generation from illicit drugs”, “say no to drugs, we are happy we are drug free”, “drug kills”,  among others.
  Just as the Commander, National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in Anambra State, Mr Sule Momodu has called on parents to give listening ears to their children to enable them know their aspirations and needs in life.
Momodu identified lack of attention to children as the major cause, why some children engage in illicit drug which, according to him, often leads them into serious problems.

The road walk which started at the NDLEA headquarters in Awka went through popular UNIZIK junction through Aroma junction to Dr Alex Ekwueme square before terminating at the NDLEA headquarters.
Addressing journalists, Mr Momodu said the essence of the road walk was to sensitize members of the public on the danger inherent in taking illicit drugs.
Mr Momodu insisted that children, as leaders of tomorrow must be guided accordingly to enable them achieve their life dreams.
One of the participants, Mr Gregory Anene, however called on governments at various levels to intensify efforts towards eliminating the incidence of illicit drugs in the society, especially among the youths.
Mr Anene who is the state chairman of illicit drug abuse education (IDAE), emphasized that youths were more vulnerable to illicit drugs, charged parents to devote more time in bringing up their children rather than pursuing money.
One of the students who participated in the event, Miss Perpetua Chiagbata appealed to her fellow youths to be more dedicated to their studies.
