Unregistered pharmaceutical drugs pose great danger to the nation and the problem of counterfeit drugs is a global scourge that the whole world is grappling with.

The Nigerian Customs Service, Sokoto Zonal Command, submitted on Wednesday while handing over 1,198 cartons of seized fake drugs to the National Agency for Foods, Drugs Administration and Control in Sokoto.

Speaking while handing over the seized items to the agency at the Sokoto zonal office, the Area Controller, Comptroller Musa Omale, assured NAFDAC of the command’s unflinching support for its fight against counterfeit drugs.

The Area Controller explained that the seizure was in line with the collaboration policy thrust of the Comptroller General of Customs Bashir Adewale Adeniyi.

He stressed that unregistered pharmaceutical drugs pose great danger to the nation, adding that the problem of counterfeit drugs is a global scourge that the whole world is grappling with.

Omale however, warned smugglers to desist from the act as the Command was battle-ready to curtail the nefarious deed.

He said, “For control, importation of Pharmaceutical Drugs through the land border is not allowed.

“The Service has streamlined the importation of all Pharmaceutical Drugs through designated seaports and are only cleared after meeting the pre-requisite documentation.”

Drugs handed over include 450 Cartons of Real Extra Tablet, 405 cartons of sex enhancement drugs, 148 cartons of condoms, 30 cartons of Vernos chewable drugs, and others.

The Sokoto NAFDAC Coordinator, Garba Adamu, thanked the service for the unwavering synergy and collaboration toward safeguarding the life and health of Nigerians.
