HISTORICAL AND LEGAL PERSPECTIVES OF INTERNATIONAL AND MUNICIPAL WAR AGAINST ILLICIT DRUG TRADE: A COLLABORATIVE EFFORT BETWEEN NIGERIA (NDLEA) AND U.S.A (DEA), 1990-2018

Research Details

Existing study on the problem of drug trafficking had rested squarely on drug policy formulation which is based on the clear evidence that illicit drug cultivation and manufacture can be eradicated only if policies are aimed at the overall social, economic and political consequences. The age-long war on drug policy in Nigeria and the United States and indeed all over the world may have produced desired results, there is evidence of negative consequences and unresolved issues associated with the war. These issues include economic crime human rights development and security as well as public health. The research therefore examines the historical and legal perspectives of the international and municipal war against illicit drug trade using the Nigerian Drug law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) and the United States’ Drug Enforcement Agency (US. DEA) collaborative effort as a case study between 1990 and 2018, The objectives of the research include tracing the history and development of the drug trade: examine the various legal enactments to combat illicit drug trade, look at cooperative efforts of the NDLEA and USDEA in curbing the drug scourge the nexus between drugs and crime and examine the politics of drug control in Nigeria. The study integrates three theoretical approaches in its analysis. The behavioral approach anchored on two aspects frustration-aggression theory and the anomie theory. The study recommends a comparative study of the individual nation’s historical experience in dealing with the drug issue and the most efficient way is to legalese drugs as prohibition acts builds the market, attract criminals, incentives, violence and makes it profitable.
