Tramadol, sold under the brand name Ultram among others, is an opioid pain medication used to treat moderate to moderately severe pain.
A few hours ago, Sunday Martins, a Nigerian skit maker better known as De General, was arrested by NDLEA operatives at his house in Lagos today.
The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency says it arrested the comedian because drugs were found at his house.
The drugs were said to be Tramadol and weed(marijuana).
Is Tramadol Prohibited In Nigerian?
In Nigeria, there are some drugs that are highly prohibited and are no longer prescribed or sold by pharmacists.
The question is-is tramadol among the prohibited drugs? YES, sometime around 2018 if I’m not mistaken. Only medical practitioners are allowed to make use of it on patients for pain relief purposes.
So what is Comedian De General doing with tramadol? Is he sick?
