NACOC assures the public that it is committed to collaborating with all relevant institutions in minimising the drug trafficking threat to the country.

The Commission would like to use this medium to remind the general public that the possession and transportation of illicit drugs without lawful authorization is illegal and punishable under sections 40 (1) and 41 (1) of Act 1019 of the Narcotics Control Commission Act 2020.
