The NAFDAC Director-General, Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye, stated this known to newsmen on Thursday in Kano, NAN reports.

Mojisola said that the fake products were seized by operatives of the agency during various operations in the state.

She listed the products to include substandard, fake, falsely labeled medicines, unwholesome processed food products, and cosmetics seized from manufacturers, distributors, and importers.

“The estimated value of the products being destroyed today is N613,300,290.00.

“The products include drugs such as antibiotics, antihypertensive, antimalarial, herbal remedies, psychoactive and controlled substances.

“Foods such as spaghetti, vegetable oil, non-alcoholic beverages, sachet water, etc, were also destroyed.

She further revealed that destroying the goods would eliminate the risk of their reintroduction into the market, adding that drug counterfeit is an act of economic sabotage and pose a serious threat to public health.

“The public must be on the look-out for these spurious and counterfeit vaccines and other regulated products.

“NAFDAC on its part will ensure continuous surveillance on these products and enforce the regulations governing these products in Nigeria,” She added.
