NDLEA Reveals Nigerian Youths Take Processed Urine To Feel High
National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has revealed some Nigerian youths take processed urine to be intoxicated.
In a world where there are already lots and lots of intoxicants, the commission on charge of fighting drug abuse, NDLEA has revealed the new set of intoxicants Nigerian youths take.
In a discussion with the Head of Drug Reduction of the NDLEA in Adamawa State, Shehu Dankolo, by news outlet Daily Post, the new sets of intoxicants included putting maggi in some energy drinks, putting a certain sweet in half bottle of water which they cover up and leave for some days, drinking processed urine and lots more.
Shehu Dankolo said; “There are certain controlled drugs, particularly codeine cough syrup. You know, federal government clamped seriously on them. Some of the companies closed down. So, the cough syrup that was initially N250 per bottle, but it is now sold for about N4,000. The same thing with tramadol which was N50 but is now about N500.
“Because these abused but banned drugs are so scarce and costly or entirely out of reach, people improvise other things. I won’t include so much detail so that people don’t read this and begin to experiment.
“There is a way they process urine. They take it and become intoxicated. There is a way they put maggi in some energy drinks and it gives them intoxication. There is a certain sweet they put in half bottle of water which they cover up and leave for some days. They form such other things. There are what we call new psychoactive substances. That is why drug abuse is difficult to tackle.”
