Suicide: NAFDAC Bans Sale Of Sniper, Others In The Open Market by skypper: 7:28am On Jul 11
The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control has announced the ban on sale of Sniper and other brands of agricultural formulations of Dichlorvos following rampant suicide cases and misuse of the products.

The Director-General of NAFDAC, Prof. Moji Adeyeye, said this in a statement on Wednesday.

Adeyeye said from September 1, 2019, Sniper and other related products would not be sold in supermarkets and in the open markets.

The NAFDAC boss said such products should only be used for outdoor purposes and not private homes.

The statement read in part, “NAFDAC is giving a two-month (up to August 31, 2019) notice to brand owners/distributors to recall and withdraw their products from open markets and supermarkets that do not have garden corner/shelves to the agro dealer outlets.

“The sale of Sniper insecticide and other Dichlorvos brands in open markets and supermarkets nationwide is prohibited with effect from September 1, 2019. NAFDAC is giving a six-month moratorium up to January 1, 2020 for brand owners to exhaust the products that are in various accredited agro-input dealers (distributors/marketers/retailers) outlets.”

The agency ordered the mandatory listing of dealers, distributors, marketers and retailers of agrochemicals.

All NAFDAC formations are expected to collect the list to ensure continual monitoring of all agro dealers in their states, the statement stated further.

The agency said CropLife Nigeria, in collaboration with NAFDAC, had agreed to provide antidotes against Dichlorvos poisoning in tertiary and secondary medical centres across Nigeria, as well as the reformulation of all Dichlorvos preparation to include “bitter agents and vomiting induced agents.”

It banned the importation and manufacture of 100ml pack size of agricultural formulations of Dichlorvos with immediate effect while the hawking of all agrochemical formulations was also prohibited.

Sniper is just secondary, the root cause is govt policies.
The cause of suicide is Buhari's inept govt of poverty.

Very funny moves. How does this eradicate suicide?

What is suicide if I may ask?

Let them be prepared to ban "rope" and laying surveillance on the third main land bridge also(lagoon).

I wonder how we got here as a country.

Creat jobs, let money flow and this would reduce the suicide rate.


Many commit suicide as a result of debts, feeling of despair, and lack of hope.

When there are jobs and money flows, I don't think someone would wanna commit suicide. If at all, it would be rarely heard or seen.

This is no where near the solution to suicide. Drinking sniper to commit suicide is more of an equal reaction to an initial action. Hence, to prevent suicide, the underlying causes of suicide should be attended to, not banning the sales of sniper in the open market.

Does NAFDAC not know that everything surrounding us can take life away as much as they sustain lives?

Is it only sniper that can be use to commit suicide? The root cause is what the government need to address and not just banning the product.

NAFDAC is not incharge of the economy.

Yes, the APC governemnt must improve the economy...but poor economy is not the only cause of suicide.

Better spending on mental health is the way forward.

The ban of sniper is not the solution to suicidal thoughts and acts. People will still find other means to ending their lives. Just, like others took Thiers before the arrival of sniper.

Good development but will Nigerians still.not sneak it into the markets and even make it more expensive. NAFDAC needs to get to work. Dont just sit in your offices and ban by mouth. Action is required.
