He said gambling is a social vice he is committed to eradicating from the state. Borno state governor, Kashim Shettima, has ordered agents of online gambling sites, Bet9ja and , out of the state. According to reporters, the governor disclosed on Sunday, May 20, 2018, that he has issued a directive to get them out of the state because gambling is a social vice he is committed to eradicating alongside drug abuse.

While speaking at the 14th Annual Ramadan Lecture organized by Borno Radio Television Corporation in Maiduguri, he said, “I have given directives to all Bet-Naija and agents in the state to leave immediately. Drug and substance abuse gives birth to all immoral vices hence government’s determination to fight all forms of social vices.”

The governor also urged Muslim faithfuls in the state to unite and support the government’s fight to rescue the state from the escalation of social vices.

Substance abuse among Nigerian youths has been in focus over the past few weeks with a particular focus on the worrying consumption of codeine and tramadol.
