Man jailed for dealing in Codeine Syrup

A Federal High Court in Lagos on Thursday sentenced a businessman, Sylvanus Nwanoro, to five years imprisonment for dealing in a controlled drug, codeine syrup.

Justice Ibrahim Buba handed down the judgement with an option of N500,000 just as he lamented the side effects of the drug on youths who saw it as recreational drug.

Nwanoro, 37, was arraigned on five charges bordering on illegal possession and sales of a controlled drug, Cof ‘N’Cold with Codeine Syrup, but pleaded guilty only to one of the charges.

Codeine syrup produces euphoria similar to that produced by other opioid drugs, and hard drugs.

And when abused, it directly or indirectly cause a pleasurable increase in the amount of dopamine in the brain’s reward pathway. Repeatedly seeking to experience that feeling can lead to addiction—a chronic relapsing brain disease characterized by inability to stop using a drug despite damaging consequences to a person’s life and health.
