Locals attacked the homes of suspected drug dealers after a popular anti-drug campaigner, Abduraghman Sydow, was shot dead last month outside the house of an alleged drug dealer. Police had been deployed to protect the homes of the suspected drug dealers.

Yesterday, Fasieg Adams, the imam of a mosque in Lentegeur, accused government officials of not doing much to curb the widespread use of drugs.

Adams' comments come in the wake of the highly addictive drug, tik gaining popularity.

He said poverty and unemployment were also rife in Mitchell's Plain.

Adams and other residents handed over a memorandum to chief state law advisor Enver Daniels, who would then forward it to the justice ministry.
