NAFDAC busts drug store in Anambra, uncovers unregistered sex enhancement tablets, others

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration (NAFDAC), on Friday, March 31, busted a store at the bridge head market, Onitsha, Anambra state, which specializes in the sale of expired sex enhancement drugs.

The agency’s chief laboratory technologist, Usman Amen, who led the Investigation and enforcement directorate team from Lagos state, while making this known on Friday, said that the store was notorious for dealing in unregistered and expired drugs.

According to him, the operation was carried out, following a tip off on the nefarious activities going on in the market.

Usman said that the drugs included delay viagra, afrofranil, breast enhancement, butt enhancement, rocket in pocket men gel and tramadol, among others.

He said that, “We came from Lagos state on a tip off, but before we arrived here, the owner of these sex enhancement drugs abandoned his store and ran away.

“In view of this, we had to break the store and on entering inside, we saw some expired drugs, like tramadol, breast enhancer and all kinds of sexual drug enhancers.

“We ensured that we evaluated the drugs and sealed up the store.

“The owner will have to come to our office in Lagos state for interrogation.

“We also sealed the store in Ogbo-Ogwu bridge head market because a particular drug we were informed about was not found but the invoice indicated when the drug was last sold.

“The second store was sealed because there were some drugs that are not allowed to be sold in the market, we evaluated them and sealed the store,” Usman said.

He also called on the public to be vigilant, adding that some drugs being produced and sold in the market were not worth consuming.
