The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration (NAFDAC), has seized cartons of aphrodisiac products and sex enhancement drugs worth N12 million in Sokoto State.

NAFDAC Coordinator in the state, Garba Adamu, told newsmen on Monday that the agency’s patrol team made the seizures during routine patrol operations across markets in Sokoto and environs.

Mr Adamu explained that the products were unregistered, highly unsafe due to dangerous ingredients used in the preparations, and an eyesore because of the blatant use of pornographic pictures on the package.

He appealed to the public to desist from buying such products from unlicensed premises and only patronize registered and safe products from licensed outlets.

“We also call on the general public to always report hawkers and dealers of such products to NAFDAC, as well as report any adverse reactions they may get from taking such products or any other related products.

“Some marketers are in the habit of dumping expired or about -to-expire products in markets in Sokoto and environs, while some are taken to border markets and rural areas for consumption”, he said.

He cautioned traders against selling adulterated, counterfeit, unregistered and expire goods to the public, reiterating that NAFDAC would continue the enforcement at all times.
