“This is to show the extent to which people are willing to go, to make money from the sales of expired products. They have been caught and will not be spared.

“Other products destroyed included fake and counterfeit drugs, prohibited substandard and expired food products, cosmetics, and other regulated products.

“These were seized by the Investigation and Enforcement Directorate of NAFDAC, from manufacturers, importers, and distributors in Lagos State and environs.

“The agency has continued to aggressively pursue the goals of ensuring that only genuine medicines and wholesome foods of the right quality are imported, exported, manufactured and distributed.

“Surveillance and enforcement operations at our ports, borders and identified routes used by smugglers, have been intensified and this has led to increased seizures of fake regulated products smuggled through our land borders”.
