The five most dangerous drinks consumed in Lagos are as follows:

1. Sachet Water
This is at the top of the list because it fails to reach the hygienic requirements for clean water, i.e. it also contains impurities. This is the quickest-selling commodity in Lagos and Nigeria as a whole, and it only costs N10. Since the pure water industry produces a lot of revenue, a lot of people are involved in it.

Pure water is said to be hazardous to one’s health not only because of its packaging, but also because of the manufacturing facility (factory). Since pathogenic (disease-causing) microorganisms are prevalent in nature, some of the factories are infested with large numbers of pathogenic (disease-causing) microorganisms that infest the water (everywhere).

When these microorganisms are ingested, they can cause illnesses such as typhoid and cholera, and water is considered pure when it is free of these microorganisms.

As a result, the government should make safe and assessable water accessible to its residents, as well as make an effort to audit pure water factories to ensure that they follow the hygiene requirement.

2. Opa-Eyin
This is a locally distilled gin made from a blend of herbs and roots. Opa-Eyin is said to cure a variety of diseases, though this has not been proved scientifically. Lagosians are the primary consumers of this product.

This drink is classified as harmful since it is impossible to know what root and herb was used in its manufacture or what negative effects it might have on the body. Herbs are known to function in medicine, but when administered in high doses, they may have a harmful effect.

3. The drug codeine
One of the most well-known and unhealthy beverages consumed in Lagos is this. It is mainly eaten by teenagers and is used in cough syrups sold in drug stores. This medication is commonly abused by converting an entire bottle into a cocktail and drinking it sip by sip until the bottle is empty.

Codeine is known to help people fall asleep, particularly those who suffer from insomnia (cannot sleep).

4. Monkey-Tail
This is a blend of gin manufactured in the area and Indian hemp or cannabis (Igbo). Even though monkey-tail is one of the most dangerous drinks, most people enjoy drinking it, sometimes to the point of addiction.

According to medical experts, this drink can cause mental disturbances as well as damage internal organs of the body, resulting in death.

5. Scooches
This is made from a mixture of zobo, hemp, local rum, and codeine, all of which are extremely harmful to one’s health. Scooches are served at famous bars and drinking establishments in Lagos and other Nigerian cities.

The federal government has formed agencies such as the NDLEA, NAFDAC, and others in an attempt to stop the manufacture of these harmful drinks, but the number of people drinking them continues to rise.
