Mkpuru Mmiri has become a serious issue in Nigeria and the Southeast with thousands of Igbo youths addicted to the drug.
Mkpuru Mmiri is the Igbo slang name for a very dangerous hard drug called Methamphetamine or Crystal Meth.

Therapy and Cure
There is no drug that can cure Mkpuru Mmiri addiction. This is what makes it so dangerous.

There is no quick cure or drug for the addiction and the therapy is not readily available in Nigeria like I said above.
