100 Drug Addicts Caught In UNILAG
The institution said no less than 100 illicit drug users were caught within a year of commencement of the tests.
Outgoing Vice-Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Rahaman Bello, confirmed this at a forum with newsmen in Lagos.
Bello said the initiative was necessary because cases of drug abuse are on the rise in tertiary institutions.
“Drug abuse is a major problem for every institution, particularly those in the cities. We have gone ahead in the University of Lagos to address it.
“With the test kit, anyone who is suspected, his/her urine or blood — depending on what we want to do — is collected for test".
According to him, with the test kit, the university has been able to pin down victims, but granted them amnesty.
He said although the university’s regulation provides that any student found dealing with drug should be expelled, the management has warned culprits while rehabilitation has begun.
