"Igbo Behind Drug Abuse In The North" - Malam Bala Mohammed by iykecicero: 3:19pm On Apr 03, 2018
KANO – A University Don, Malam Bala Mohammed, has accused the Igbo as responsible for drug abuse prevalent among youths in the North.


*Results from the latest NOI Poll showed that 9 in 10 Nigerians believe the highest abusers of drugs and substance are teenagers and young adults aged between 15 and 29 years old.It has also emerged true from this poll that the most abused substance in Nigeria is marijuana.

Malam Mohammed, a lecturer with the Faculty of Communication, Bayero University Kano said that available statistics points to at these “unscrupulous Igbo drug dealers as brain behind the scourge”.


The Communication expert said “this is not hate speech, my position was grounded on the available statistics of suspects that have been arrested in connection with supply and distribution of illicit drugs in the North to Igbos”

Mohammed, who made the accusation while presenting a paper at the Kano Youth Summit on Peace Advocacy and Development, organised by Hamisu Magaji Foundation, at Mambayya House, noted that the Igbo made inroads through local collaborators.

In a paper, titled: “Nexus between youth, drugs, crime and insecurity”, Malam Mohammed wondered why drug abuse was not prevalent in the southeast region, but the Igbo people resorted to supply illicit drugs to the northern.

The University Don said “our investigation revealed that drug abuse is beyond normal marijuana, cocaine, alcohol, etc, it has moved to the extent that the medicines we take in order to cure our diseases are now being converted into hard drugs.

Speaking further Malam Mohammed said “we discovered that it is the handiwork of the Igbo people, who connived with the locals to supply the codeine into our region, especially Kano State.

According to him “there are many instances where Igbo were arrested for supplying codeine into Kano and some parts of the north. The cases have been reported on national dailies.

“So, why shouldn’t they take it to their region? Why don’t their youth engage in drug abuse? This is really sad, and we have to rise up to fight this menace, ” he lamented.

He, however blamed the judiciary for its failure to stem the tide by flagrant release of suspects, adding that complacency on their part has not helped the situation.

Bala Mohammed suggested communal help to arrest the scourge, stressing that the menace appeared to have overwhelmed the authority.

In a speech, the chairman, Hamisu Magaji Foundation, said the essence of the summit was to enlighten the youth ahead of the 2019 elections.

He decried that despite youths massive contributions to nation building they have little or no access to leadership positions in the country.

The Kowa Party governorship aspirant also declared that Kano Youth have resolved that any politician above 50 years would not contest for governorship seat, adding that any person above 30 years would not be given the chance to be for legislative seats in the state.

“We will contest for all the political positions come 2019 because we are tired of recycling of leadership in this country.

” Our stance is that any politician above 50 years would not contest for governorship seat, while any person above 30 years would not contest for legislative positions in this state, ”

What a clown so it's the Igbos that made you guys into junkies. Did they force money out of your pocket or drugs in your body. In order for an economic transaction to occurs you need two willing participants. You think there's no drug dealing in SE? Lol the market is just better in North because there's lots of codeine crazy folks. You don't automatically become a codeine junkie just by having a few cups. Its takes repeated use at high doses.

“So, why shouldn’t they take it to their region? Why don’t their youth engage in drug abuse? This is really sad, and we have to rise up to fight this menace, ” he lamented.

Until u all come to the negotiating table to negotiate our continual existence as a country, the Igbos will keep taking advantage of the economic situation in the country.

1. We will keep selling fake china products to u all and use the money u pay us to buy ur ancestral lands from u.

2. We will keep selling drugs to u all and stand back and watch y'all destroy urselves.

3. We will keep selling awka-made guns to u all and watch with glee as u all kill each other due to ur usual brand of religion and politics.

Divide the damn county if u dont like us. We will not apologise for selling wat u need to u. Demand determines supply. Nonsense ppl.

sad

If a University 'Don' can spew this trash, i expect nothing much from the students.

Were they forced to buy?
Probably the 'Igbos' have been forcing Codeine and co down their throats.

This doesn't give the North any credit, like they are led in the nose when it is crime and they lead the way in politics.
Please, you people should clean up the mess in the North. Is it also Igbos that started Boko Haram? Until you tell yourself the home truth, the North shall remain backward in spite of everything. You have wronged your youth. Recognize them!!
