Fake drugs worth N30m confiscated by Kano agency
TO complement the effort of Kano State government in the fight against fake and adulterated drugs, the Kano Road and Traffic Agency (KAROTA) has confiscated 28 mega cartons of illicit drugs worth N30m in Kano.
According to a statement signed and issued by the Agency’s Public Relations Officer, Nabilusi Abubakar Kofar Na’isa, a copy made available on Thursday said the seizure came after intelligence gathering by men of the Agency that uncertified and highly abused male enhancement drugs were smuggled to the state and stored by some expatriates.
The statement disclosed that the KAROTA under the leadership of Baffa Babba Dan’agundi, on Wednesday, raided a store along Airport Road by Murtala Muhammad Way where the drugs are kept after being imported into the state without NAFDAC Registration.
The agency which is part of the state’s task force against drug abuse and supply of hard or contraband drugs raided the said house on Wednesday in line with its mandate to get rid of any of such products.
Managing Director of the agency, Dan’agundi, also warned that the agency would continue to do everything necessary and within its jurisdiction to prevent irregularities and breach of law and order on the state’s roads.
