Armed robbers now using Tramadol to be bold - COP Ken Yeboah

The wanton abuse of drugs especially Tramadol is partly to blame for the increasing cases of robberies in the country, officials of the Ghana Police Service have revealed.

According to the Pharmaceutical Society of Ghana, the drug is approved for the management of pain but the rapid increase in its use by the youth is worrying.

“The strengths approved for use in Ghana by the FDA are the 50mg and 100mg oral capsules,” not 200mg/250mg as it has found to be circulating in markets in the country”

Ashanti Regional Police Commander, COP Ken Yeboah on Kumasi-based Abusua FM, told host Kwame Adinkra that the drug is being abused by these criminals you use it and become fearless.

“If they take the drug, they become bold and sometimes want to engage us in a shootout. Some of them are pushed into this as a result of societal pressure, greed and mentors”, he stated.
