A Nigerian lady has shared her sad story on how she got addicted to codeine and weed and it was all after the dreaded sect Boko Haram killed her husband.
The lady opend up to Bits by Borno, and according to her, she has been able to find succor in the hard substances and she feels happy anytime she takes them:
”‘There were so many losses in my life. My father died. My husband was killed by Bokoharam. I was happily married and my husband was a driver. He drove big trucks from Lagos to Maiduguri and provided everything for me. We were so happy. I have a daughter Khadijah who now lives with my mother. When my husband was killed, I didn’t want to move in with her and her husband.
I didn’t want to be the reason her marriage failed. Because I didn’t like the man she married after my father died. So I went to live with my uncle. And you know when a house isn’t your home, you face so many things.
I was mistreated badly in the house and my clothes were thrown out. His family kicked me out of their house. I didn’t know where to go or what to do. And that was when I decided to move in with one of my friends and they introduced me to this lifestyle.
I take about four bottles of codeine, I smoke weed and also swallow tablets. I don’t think too much when I take all of these. I feel happy’ She said
