From Sniffing Glue to drinking Cough Syrup… Episode 6 of ‘Professor JohnBull’ takes on Drug Use | Watch on BN TV



Two Nollywood legends, Kanayo O. Kanayo (KOK) and Patience Ozokwor, a.k.a. Mama G, join hands in the new episode of the Globacom-sponsored TV drama series, Professor Johnbull, to campaign against the use of hard drugs and other dangerous substances by youths in society.

In the episode entitled High People, Mama G collaborates with KOK, who plays the role of the erudite Professor Johnbull, in organising a seminar on the adverse effects of hard drugs. However, the bubble bursts as a regular on the sitcom, Flash the Boy (Stephen Odimgbe) is rushed in, almost running mad as a result of the hard drug he takes from a fellow student identified as MacChukwu Ilodibe.

Besides Flash, who takes “a puff of solution”, the episode also shows Jumoke (Bidemi Kosoko) trying to ‘get high’, as a result of disappointment by her boyfriend, by drinking cough syrup, one of the substances many youths abuse in order to be ‘high’ and feel better after a depressing experience.

The scholar, Professor Johnbull, draws attention of the public to the alarming number of young people who are hooked on drugs simply because they erroneously believe that they need the drugs to excel in life or that such drugs enhance their capabilities. Characteristically, the professor emphasises the fact that a lot of patients in the nation’s psychiatric hospitals are victims of hard drugs, a situation, he says, is completely preventable.

He also counsels that, because the drugs are addictive in nature, prolonged use of the substances eventually destroys vital organs of the body. The episode also exposes the fact that in an attempt to ‘get high’, many young men and women sniff gutters, sewage pipes, fuel and glue. Other regulars of the series who feature in High People are Caro (Mercy Johnson-Okojie), Churchill (Jnr. Pope Odonwodo) and Abadnego (Martins Nebo).

    Hi,Bella. several factors.I’ve read an article that Xanax remains in your system for a longer time compared to other drugs, its effect usually does not last for more than four hours. This is the reason it is usually taken more than once a day, depending on the severity of the condition.Do you agree?
