He recently revealed this during a courtesy call on him by the Chief Executive Officer of the Albino Foundation, Jake Epelle.
According to him, the truth is the mental health of citizens is of utmost importance right now because most of the criminals in the country are motivated by drugs.
He added that most areas of Nigeria’s health system need to be revamped to meet international standards.
His words, “Most of these crimes perpetrated are drug-induced because no sane Nigerian will just go and commit crime except he is high on something. Imagine starting your day with the news of killing in the morning, it leaves an impression on your mind. We need to also look into issues of mental health.”
“Now, we have cults in primary and secondary schools; then, it was in tertiary institutions, but you now see children in these schools thinking of how to kill their mates. This is sad.”
