Top cop Abdul Hamid Bador made a strong statement today against the drug menace in the country, saying even his own officers are being arrested for drug use.
“If we do not check (this) now, we could lead the way just like Columbia,” he told reporters after launching an event in Cheras today.
“Addicts are doubling. My own men are arrested weekly – they are high on meth and syabu,” he added.
This year alone, 30 police officers had been arrested for taking drugs, he said.
He said the police need to “sharpen their weapons” to fight the war against drugs, adding that more people are now daring enough to rent out factories and even terrace houses for the manufacture of drugs. – FMT
