Rochas Okorocha, Governor of Imo State, has said it’s better for youths to be armed robbers than to be involved in smoking marijuana. The governor made the remark while addressing some youths of the state. In a video retrieved online, the governor, who spoke in Igbo could also be heard briefing the people on development plans he had for the community when he made the statement.
Okorocha, apparently emphasising on the danger of marijuana said, “You all know what the law says about Marijuana(weed)? Weed has killed my Children in Imo state. Anybody selling weed or consuming it, that person’s house will be demolished. “Where we are now, it is better for someone to be an Armed Robber than to Smoke weed(Goof)”.
