NAFDAC smashes forgery, counterfeiting syndicates

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC, has blown the lid off activities of unscrupulous individuals engaged in the forgery of the Agency’s documents, production of counterfeit alcoholic beverages, water for injection and sales of suspected counterfeit Peak Milk.

Speaking while parading the suspects at the Agency’s head office in Lagos, NAFDAC’s Acting Director General, Mrs Yetunde Oni, noted that the Agency received three different complaints from three countries about alleged impersonation and scams by some Nigerians who pose as staff of the Agency to process registration documents for intending importers of regulated products.

Oni explained that after diligent investigation it was discovered that the three cases were hatched and executed by a group of an international gang of criminals headed by one Mr. Eze Okoronkwo, a Nigerian who resides in Aba, Abia state.
