Sharing his sad story with GHOne news, Alex stated that he took the hard drugs to make him go higher so he could do some things. He said: “I take the hard drugs so I can get high and do things”.

He further went on to say that due to his addiction to hard drugs he has lost self-respect and has also be neglected by his own families and friends who see him to be a burden on them.

Alex, however, indicated that he was ready to undergo a rehabilitation therapy so he can be able to get himself back on track.
