The effects of hard drugs on students and what parents should do
Just recently, there was this breaking news report which indicated that a 400-level optometry student of Abia State University, Uturu, was confirmed dead after jumping down from a three-storey building.
He was reported to be on drugs when he jumped from his lodge called Favour Lodge located off the campus.
According to the revelation from the students, the deceased, identified as Francis Chibuike, in the video recorded after he took a hard drug known as Colorado, was unable to contain its effect.
For that reason, his friends reportedly locked him in the room and went in search of cassava flakes known as garri to restore him back to consciousness.
But he went through the balcony, thinking that he was on the ground floor, jumped down from a 3 storey building and died immediately, with blood gushing out from his head before they returned.
A student from the school, Paul Udo, in his Facebook post, said the deceased jumped from the stairs with head shattered beyond medical help.
Another student, Nnadi Thyword, while commenting on the incident, said: “Come to think of it; he is a medical student and ought not to be told the dangers of these drugs. It is doubtful to say that those who take these drugs don’t know the negative effects. This is simply an addiction.”
In the video which was later made available to the press, the student recording the video, who appeared to own the apartment, where Francis had taken the substance, was heard saying: “I told you not to take it, but you did. I told you I don’t like it. ”
According to a news publication, the Chief Security Officer (CSO) of the institution, Navy Commander ThankGod Evulobi (retired), confirmed the incident, describing it as one of the consequences of hard drugs.
According to him, the deceased, who is from Imo State, drugged himself and later died from the effect of It..
This is a very big lesson to all.

Always try to be observant about these substances mentioned above.
You can often visit your child’s bedroom without any awareness of your visit.
Check everything in that room to see if he or she is not hiding such drugs in his room.
You can equally send him far away for you to search their rooms.
