I Got Addicted To Codeine & Weed After My Husband Was Killed – Lady Shares Story

A Facebook page, Bits of Borno, has shared the heartbreaking story of a young lady whose husband was murdered by Boko Haram terrorists, and how she turned to codeine and weed for comfort. 

Narrating her story on social media, she said:

“There were so many losses in my life. My father died. My husband was killed by Boko Haram. 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 (drugs) 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 needs help to be normal again, hopes she gets it.
