NAFDAC Confiscates Fake Drugs Worth N25million In Warri, Seal Shops by kachysblog(f): 6:53am On Sep 11, 2015
The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) on Tuesday, 8th September, said it confiscated drugs worth over N25million, sealed 15 shops and arrested 3 traders at Igbudu market, Warri, Delta state.

The Chief Regulatory Officer, Enforcement Operation of NAFDAC in Lagos, Uche Chidi, told journalists that the traders were in possession of banned and expired products.

“The goods they (traders) have are not actually the approved products they are supposed to have….

“They are supposed to handle under-the-counter-products, but they go beyond their range to bring in products donated by the United Nations Population Funds.

“We also found injection water that (had) expired in 2011, Analgin and other injectable, [some] Pakistani unregistered products and other banned products,” he said.

Mr. Chidi said the agency would carry out periodic surveillance and inspection of the market to prevent the sale of banned and expired drugs.

Also speaking, the Chief Regulatory Officer of NAFDAC in Delta State, Nwaneka Uba, said it was heart-breaking for unqualified people to sell drugs.

“These people are not professional drugs dealers. There are some drugs that should be handled by professionals because of the pharmacological actions of the drugs.

“We saw Analgin and government donated drugs that should not be sold inside their shops; we shall investigate to ascertain how these drugs got into their possession.

“Analgin product was banned over 10 years ago by the federal government and many people have died by using Analgin,” Mrs. Uba said.

She said the team had earlier stormed Otor-Udu, a community in Warri where locally brewed gin called Ogogoro was produced.

She said that some sample of the gin was collected for laboratory analysis, adding that the result would determine the agency’s next line of action against those selling the product.

“If the product is not harmful, we will report to the management and they will tell us the next line of action to take,” she said.

Dem even reach my area self and some shops are still closed down.

That's how I was seating outside one Sunday night like dat, drunk guys now started fighting and causing havoc in the community and everyone started running.

I joined them and I was unfortunate to step on a nail. Thanks to bad indoor network.

Next day, I went to one nurse woman to gimmi tetanus injection, low and behold my arm wia d injection went through was swollen for about three months.

Since den, even though I get bad dream, na hospital I dey go

You are correct. So its safe to assume Nafdac. Did not burn them rather are negotiating with the traders on how much they want so as to return the goods.see how rotten this country has become? A classic example why corruption is not stealing.if not so someone plz explain to us why would an immigration burning officer be on this page?
