Parents are advised by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency to be vigilant and look out for small, decorative bottles in their children's pockets or bags.
Femi Babafemi, the Director of Media and Advocacy, revealed this in a statement on Sunday.
He revealed that the bottles are allegedly being used to package a drug called Loud/Colos, which is allegedly popular among young people in Lagos' affluent neighborhoods of Lekki, Ikoyi, and Victoria Island. He also mentioned that the drug is sold for a high price, with each bottle costing about 15,000 Naira.
He wrote, “Heads up to parents. Please watch out for these fanciful small bottles in the bags/pockets of your kids.“They’re now being used to package Loud/Colos for our youths, especially those in the Lekki/Ikoyi/VI axis of Lagos.
