“According to a recent study, 85 percent of mad people in Nigeria are youths within the age bracket of 18-38 years.

The major cause of mental challenge in Nigeria has gone beyond drug-abuse as the youths now inhale lizard feces, putting their noses into pit toilets, smoking matches, smoking dried horse feces and mixing lizard feces with dye powder.

Drug abuse disorder is a common problem affecting about 5 percent of the of the world population with an estimated 10.2 percent in the USA.”

He recalled that in Nigeria, it was recently reported that about three million bottles of cough syrup containing codeine are consumed daily in Kano State and about six million bottles consumed in the North-West.

Abubakar added that in 2016, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency reported that about 40 percent of Nigerian youths engaged in drug abuse.

The medical doctor stressed that the consequences of drug-abuse include mental disorder, liver cirrhosis, lethargy, and cardiovascular disorder among others.

Abubakar added that those abusing drugs mostly drop out of school, engage in cultism, violence, arm-robbery, thuggery, R@pe, lawlessness, murders and are culturally disorientated.
