The National Agency for Food, Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has confiscated fake and expired foods, drugs, cosmetics and other products worth N15million in Nasarawa State. Mr Michael Attah, the Coordinator of the Agency in the state, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Lafia that the products were confiscated from January to date.
Attah said that most of the products were mopped up during routine checks at shops and pharmacies across the state. He added that some expired products, especially drugs, were voluntarily submitted by individuals.
“Last week, the owner of a particular pharmaceutical shop submitted drugs worth about N5 million to us for destruction.
“We commended this gesture and urged other spirited Nigerians to emulate,’’ he said.
