The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), yesterday destroyed fake, substandard, expired and unwholesome products worth N80 million, in Kuje, a suburb of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
The Director-General, NAFDAC, Prof Moji Adeyeye, who supervised the destruction said that the products were seized in the Federal Capital Territory and Nasarawa State.
According to her, the destruction was a periodic exercise in NAFDAC to get rid of fake, expired and unwholesome products from the market.
“The fake and expired products we are destroying today are worth over N80 million and they were collected from FCT and Nasarawa State.
“It will interest you to know that some of the expired products were voluntarily handed over to NAFDAC by the owners while others were mopped up from shelves by our task force,” she explained.
She noted that NAFDAC would not relent in its efforts in ensuring that those involved in fake, expired and unwholesome products face the wrath of the law.
