Methamphetamine is a crystallised synthetic stimulant mainly used as recreational drug and is highly addictive, increases alertness and feelings of wellbeing of abusers.
Its addictive nature causes body temperature of the abuser to rise so high that he or she could pass out.
“Methamphetamine has the high tendency of causing emotional and thinking anxieties,” the statement said.
NACOB is advising the public to desist from delivering parcels for and on behalf of others since that had been the conduit for trafficking narcotic drugs.
It further encouraged the public to voluntarily provide information on suspected persons involved in drug related issues.
The two suspects have since been put before court, the statement said.
