Reports from the Lagos State Ministry of Health revealed that of the 801 bus drivers tested for hard drugs, 442 of them tested positive for one or more of the following: cocaine, marijuana, morphine, opiate, ketamine and others.
The tests were carried out in Mosafejo, Mushin and Oshodi/Obalende Motor Parks in December 2014.
According to the report made available to P.M.NEWS, the number of drivers that tested positive for using hard drugs while driving in 2014 is far higher than the same number discovered when a similar test was conducted in 2013. In 2013, out of the 434 bus drivers tested for hard drugs, 74 of them were found to be driving under the influence of cocaine, marijuana and the rest. Also, in 2012, of the 820 drivers screened for hard drug intake, 215 of them tested positive.
Similarly, many of the bus drivers have tested positive for alcoholic intake while behind the wheels across the state.
The test conducted in three motor parks in December 2014 showed that of the 929 drivers screened, 202 of them tested positive for taking alcohol while driving.
From the many complaints about bus drivers in lagos this report could explain a lot. God help us all.
