The Vice Chairperson of the King Jimmy Market Association, Alhassan Mansaray confirmed that he had seen youths within their community engaged in the used of dangerous narcotics, and at the same time causing havoc and unrest in the market.

 He mentioned that whenever the youths used the drug they become wayward and lawless, and sometimes the community people had to seek solace through police intervention.
