11 Year Expired Products, Maggots Etc. The SHOCKING Tale Of Chocolat Royal Shut by VoodooDoll(m): 8:44am On May 27, 2015
Chocolat Royal on Etim Inyang Crescent in VI, Lagos is a well known and loved bakery, ice cream shop and cafe.

Many who frequent the shop/building, that also houses sister companies 96.9 Cool FM and 95.1 WAZOBIA FM, amongst others, and were shocked to find out it was shut down by NAFDAC last week. According to City Reporters, several facts emerged:

- All food products/source material had expired – the oldest since 2004 and the newest in 2013. There were maggots found in some.
- 90% of the products were not labelled in English, and therefore were not registered by NAFDAC.
- Illegal cold rooms were found in the building and in the MD – Amin Moussalli‘s house.
- The contaminated food products were stored in cold rooms on top of sewage (‘suck away’ pit) and in front of toilets.

Investigations revealed that Moussalli, the Chairman of AIM Consultants, with chains of media houses including Cool FM, Nigeria Info, Wazobia FM stations, as well as WEE television stations, who is now at large, travels abroad to source for companies whose food products have few months to expire.

NAFDAC officials said the Lebanese business mogul receives these products mostly for free or at a reduced price and also gets paid by the companies to evacuate the products, which ordinarily would have cost them colossal amount of money to dispose.
He then ships them in large quantities to Nigeria, which as alleged by NAFDAC has become his dumping ground for food toxic for close to two decades.

These products are then cleared at the wharf and off-loaded inside the two cold rooms at his Karimu Kotun residence, Victoria Island, Lagos from where they are then transferred to Chocolat Royal headquarters and then used to prepare ice creams, chocolates, beverages and pastries for members of the public.

The basic question should be, how did it enter Nigeria?

It was cleared by nigerians in uniform who call themselves customs.This is one of the dangers of corruption.A man on duty will see something that is poisonous and capable of killing his countrymen being brought into the country-in this case by a foreigner-and he allows it to pass and collects bribe.This kind of corruption is egregious.The authorities should investigate this case and find out who his collaborators at the ports are.
