On Wednesday in Abuja, the (NAFDAC) National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control closed two stores for allegedly selling prohibited goods to Nigerians.
The stores are situated in the Utako Main Market and Zuba Central Motor Park.
The News Agency of Nigeria says that “Hajiya Ayesha Snuff, AK47, Bulletproof, and Hajiya Aysha Maisanda” are a few of the unregistered goods allegedly used as aphrodisiacs.
The operation was carried out as a result of intelligence information concerning the stores, according to Mr. Tamanuwa Baba, Deputy Director, of Investigation and Enforcement Directorate, NAFDAC.
“The products, some of which are allegedly made in Ghana, are intended to improve sexual performance.
These items contain a chemical compound called Pyridine, which may be detrimental to human health, according to NAFDAC laboratory examination.
“At the two stores, we discovered a lot of unregistered goods. We’ll start looking at things right away,” he said.
When asked when the shop’s owner would return from his journey, Baba claimed that the agency had detained the salesperson in the Zuba shop.
We will speak with the shop owner to find out where he is getting these things from, but according to the labels on some of them, some of them were purportedly made in Ghana.
The dealers claim that these items typically give them a high and that others claim the item has aphrodisiac properties.
These products will be destroyed following the investigation because we have not registered them.
