Corporal Dennis Nketia Boateng, popularly known as Condemn in the police service, is helping in the fight against drug abuse with his sensitization campaign.
As confirmed by a news report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Medium.com, Condemn made the statements on the Voice of Ghana Media.
According to the police officer and musician who is stationed at Ghana Highway Patrol Unit of the Ghana Police Service (GPS), the use of illicit drugs has adverse and often permanent effects on the abusers.
He has advised the youth to totally desist from the use of such substances as they are harmful to the health, sanity and development.
In furtherance, the corporal urged those who took such drugs to stop, as the long-term implications could have dire consequences on their health.
Mr Nketia Boateng also stressed the need for concerted efforts from the public to address the problem before it depletes the country’s human resources.
In conclusion, he also urged various stakeholders to engage in regular sensitisation programmes as they would go a long way to alert students on the dangers of the use of drugs like tramadol and, therefore, make them desist from using them.
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh also reported that some top Ghanaian personalities have been pouring their hearts out regarding an undeniably defamatory and racist report on Thomas Partey by the United Kingdom's TheSun.co.uk.
The UK Media reported that Thomas Partey enjoyed a massive welcome to Arsenal and went on to say that he had come a long way from a "poverty-stricken existence in Ghana".
The piercing unprofessional nature of the lede was toned down at the time YEN.com.gh filed this report as the existence the talented footballer has now been described as "humble".
