The Nigeria Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has revealed that women in Gombe state are now boiling used sanitary pads then drink it to get high.
This weird act was made known by the Gombe state command of the NDLEA, during a sensitization program in Bajoga.
Muhammad Alkali who is the commander stated that the sensitisation campaign which the agency carried out at the palace of the Emir Funakaye was to carry the traditional rulers along in the fight against illicit drugs abuse.
During his submission, he said;
“This is because it has come to our notice that most female addicts have devised means of getting high without consuming constitutionally-band or known substances. They now boil used sanitary pads mixed with other substance mostly waste, filters the water before drinking.
“You see this is very bad for as humans, our society really needs the help of all and sundry in this fight as NDLEA cannot do it alone.”
