The video that posted on Facebook to warn others, especially the youth about the adverse effects of drug abuse read, “Am very sad today in fact this is not funny ...If you know any girl taking those blue pills ...please go and report them to their parents so that dey can help dem. Some of this drugs are given to horses to control dem ...it's a controlable substance which is very dangerous ...for God sake stop takin dem …Most of this girls are so naive they think dey no it all ....Oh God have mercy on us ....Say no to drugs.”
The abuse of drugs has gained a worrying trend in recent months with many campaigns being launched to admonish the youth against abuse.
Many young people, in responding to why they abuse drugs like Tramadol, revealed that it was an effective aphrodisiac and also served as an energy booster.
Some prostitutes also indicated that taking such drugs made them high and aggressive in order to fight their customers who refused to pay after they had rendered services to them.
Many concerned bodies have taken serious moves to end the excessive intakes of such drugs and some results have been chalked in that regard.
