“I urge my colleagues to go home and pay attention to your children. You may be shocked that somebody in your household is on drugs. Always happy, always smiling and you have no idea why that child is smiling because that child is on drugs.”

Bruce added that this serious issue was not limited to Northern Nigeria as some people wrongly believed but it was a general issue affecting Nigerian youths and it must be handled with a focus on the core of the problem.

“This is a serious problem and it must be addressed in a manner that deals with the cores of the problem. They say it’s in Northern Nigeria but it is all over Nigeria.
