A former vice-chancellor, Benson Idahosa University (BIU), Prof. Ernest Izevbigie, has taken the Nigerian Breweries Plc. to a High Court in Benin City for alleged deception.

Izevbigie, a Professor of Biochemistry, accused the company of allegedly inscribing misleading information, “low sugar,” on the label of one of its non-alcoholic drinks, Amstel Malt.

The case, with suit number, B/281/2017, was filed at an Edo State High Court before the Chief Judge of the state, Justice Esohe Ikponmwen, through the claimant’s lawyer, Mr. Okonkwo Emmanuel of Henry Idahagbon and Co. (Trinity Chambers).

Izevbigie alleged that a laboratory investigation revealed that the product contained more sugar than the company claimed in the inscription of the brand.

He, therefore, prayed the court to order the company to tender a written apology because he had been injured by the alleged deception even as he claimed that the label was misleading to the public.

Izevbigie said that he had during a medical check-up discovered an increase in his blood sugar level, adding that he had traced the challenge to his regular intake of the malt drink.

During cross-examination by the counsel to the defendant, Mr. L. O. Ogiefere, Izevbigie told the court that Amstel Malt did not merit the “low sugar” label, according to clinical research.

According to him, the drink allegedly contained 10 cubes of sugar as against the 10 and a half to 10 one-quarter cubes contained in other malt drinks. The matter was later adjourned to June 28 for the defendant to opens its case.

Mumu man looking for where to make a quick out-of-court harvest.
How can a Nigerian VC not know that there is no consumer protection right in Nigeria?

He should not disturb us with his Diabetes woes.
Nigerian Breweries does not cause weak erection.

Next time, he should drink Dubic Malt mixed with Alomo Bitters.

Thank God people are asking questions now. Deception is too much in this country because no one actually care. Some of us don't even care about expiry dates.

Sir, please in the name of God, withdraw your case against Nigerian breweries and rather use the resourses to take Nigerian government to court for bad and deceptive government and also insecurity,poverty, Idoncarity.

Nigerian breweries is not the enemy,,,, rather its the Nigerian government..

Indeed he's fighting for a genuine course. Amstel Malta low sugar drink is a scam.
But we are in fantastically corrupt kwantry where things like this will be swept under the carpet.

Let's see how this case unfolds

good one. Did you know that most of the preservatives put in the so called SOFT DRINK are killing our body system softly.
Most of this companies can't try this poo in neighbouring African countries. That is why Ghana coke is different from naija coke, Ghana Milo is different from naija own.
Silly nafdac will only act after an international body does their homework for them

You will be a fool to believe this ex VCS story...the truth is that this man took all the drinks inscribed low sugar to the lab tested them and after analysis he found out that amstel had too much sugar now he's claiming the drink have scattered his kidney and other internal organ... the man is just looking for a cool retirement benefit

Low sugar indeed
Re: Ernest Izevbigie Sues Nigerian Breweries For Misleading People About Malt Drink by Ichokwu: 7:21am On May 16, 2018
The ex-VC will loose. The malt actually contained lower amount of sugar than all other malts by a half cube or a quarter; so it is qualified to be called low sugar.

So, he did not see Buhari that swore to Allah that Abacha did not steal to sue?

Foolish man. angry
