The National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration on Tuesday sealed two warehouses at Sabon Gari Market in Kano for allegedly recycling expired drugs.
The Coordinator of NAFDAC in Kano State, Shaba Muhammed, told newsmen after the operation that an intelligence report exposed the illegal activities at the warehouses.
Muhammed said a surveillance team of the agency carried out an undercover investigation and confirmed the illegal activities at the warehouses.
He said the sealed warehouses had been placed under security surveillance until investigations were concluded.
He said: “It is our mandate to safeguard the lives and health of people through what they consume, yet the public need to work with us by informing us of such acts.”
Muhammed appealed to the residents not to panic but report such cases to the agency.
