Sierra Leone stationing armed police outside cemeteries to prevent graverobbers from STEALING HUMAN BONES for use as drug ingredients
By Richard Brown // Apr 11, 2024

The West African nation of Sierra Leone has begun stationing armed police outside of cemeteries in an effort to thwart drug addicts from attempting to plunder human remains for ingredients to be used in the creation of a potent psychoactive "zombie" drug whose spread has gripped the country.

The move comes after President Julius Maada Bio declared a national emergency to combat the widespread abuse of the locally concocted drug nicknamed "kush," which is a dangerous mix of marijuana, fentanyl, tramadol, formaldehyde and, in some instances, ground up human bones. (Related: Philadelphia's "Zombieland" Kensington neighborhood continues to suffer from spread of "tranq" drug.)

The drug was first reported in Sierra Leone in 2018. It is known to give a hypnotic high that can last for several hours. In recent years, abuse of kush has surged and has become an unprecedented challenge for the country, leading to hundreds of deaths and severe psychiatric harm to thousands of other people.

"Our country is currently faced with an existential threat due to the ravaging impact of drugs and substance abuse, particularly the devastating synthetic drug kush," warned Bio.

In an effort to stymie the manufacturing of kush, the government has deployed armed police to safeguard cemeteries in the capital of Freetown. Reports indicate that graverobbers have been raiding burial sites under the cover of darkness.

The alarming trend of using ground-up human bones has prompted intensified efforts by law enforcement to combat grave robbery, particularly in the Racecourse Cemetery in Freetown, where the local gang known as the "Kush Boys" have been implicated in the tampering of graves.

Drug abuse in Sierra Leone reaching catastrophic levels

Dr. Harold Thomas of the Sierra Leone Ministry of Health and Sanitation underscored the severity of the situation, with admissions to psychiatric hospitals skyrocketing by nearly 4,000 percent between 2020 and 2023.

The entire nation of nearly nine million people currently only has one functioning drug rehabilitation center in Freetown, which is a 100-bed facility hurriedly set up in an army training center earlier this year to deal with the drug abuse crisis. It has been described as "more of a holding center than a rehab" due to the lack of proper facilities for caring for addicts.

The government is implementing a strategy of breaking the drug supply chain through "investigations, arrests and prosecutions." Bio has also set up a task force to eradicate the drug and to create centers in every district "adequately staffed by trained professionals to offer care and support to people with drug addiction."

If Sierra Leone is unable to get its crisis under control, experts warn that the drug's allure, coupled with widespread unemployment and conflicts across West Africa, could make the drug spread across the entire region.

Dr. Abdul Jalloh of the Sierra Leone Psychiatric Hospital said current government efforts, including the declaration of a state of emergency, are "the right step" and will be "crucial in addressing drug use."
