THE Jigawa office of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has said that it confiscated fake food items and drugs worth N3.28 million.

The State Director of the Agency, Olakunle Olaniran, told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday July 9, 2015 in Dutse that the items were confiscated in Dutse and other major towns in the state in the last three years.

He explained that the food items and drugs confiscated were fake and adulterated, adding that the items included sugar, spaghetti and vegetable oil.

He said the others were oxytocin injections, gentamacin injections, sudrex tablets and augmentin syrup.

Olaniran said the agency was waiting for directive from its national office approving the destruction of the seized items.
