The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has revealed that the Nigerian youths have found a new way of getting intoxicated by using their urine.
According to Shehu Dankolo, Head of Drug Reduction of the NDLEA in Adamawa State revealed that some Nigerian youths now take processed urine to feel “high” as the ban on some abused drugs have made them relatively expensive.
“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.
