Vandi, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Yola, expressed concern over the increasing rate of drug abuse among different age groups.

According to him, the hospital admits over 100 cases with mental and other related health issues.

”The use of psychoactive drugs especially among youths, is becoming an issue of concern.

”On daily basis, the hospital receives between three to five mental cases mostly related to drug abuse.”
