Young Lady Dies After Smoking ‘Colos’ Anambra



On a recent weekend in Awka, Anambra State, an unidentified woman reportedly died after consuming Colorado, a psychotropic drug commonly known as “Colos.”

According to a circulating video and voice note on social media, the woman smoked the drug repeatedly, exhibiting unusual behavior before collapsing and passing away. The video shows her lifeless body near the UNIZIK Junction-Okpuno road.

An eyewitness account states that the woman lost consciousness and began acting erratically after smoking Colos. Passersby attempted to assist her by providing clothing and administering soaked garri to mitigate the drug’s effects. However, she reportedly smoked Colos again, leading to her collapse and eventual death.

The woman’s body was later removed by her family members after being recognized by passersby.

Izunna Okafor, the State Commandant of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in Anambra, condemned the incident as a consequence of drug abuse. He emphasized that Colorado is a psychotropic drug that can have devastating effects on mental health and lead to addiction.

“Colos flows directly into the bloodstream, affecting one’s mental state immediately,” Okafor said. “This is why we urge everyone to abstain from drug use and report any suspicious activities to the NDLEA.”

The NDLEA has been conducting sensitization programs in schools and public places to combat drug abuse. The agency also broadcasts a radio program called “NDLEA and You” every Tuesday on ABS 88.5FM.

“We need everyone’s cooperation in fighting drug abuse,” Okafor stated. “Protect your loved ones by reporting drug users and dealers. Do not support such activities.”
