NAFDAC Shuts Down Illegal Alcohol Factory With N50million Products In Lagos

The National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has confirmed the shutting down of the operations of Mr Chinedu Okafor, an illegal drinks manufacturer operating from his residence on MTN Road, Badagry, in Lagos State.

 

This was stated in a press statement by the agency, revealing that Okafor’s operation raised suspicion from the Nigerian Army and he was arrested by the military.

 

The statement reads: “NAFDAC enforcement officers, aided by intelligence from the Nigerian Army’s 15 Field Engineering Regiment in Badagry, dismantled the operations of Mr. Chinedu Okafor, an illegal drinks manufacturer operating from his residence at No. 24, MTN Road, Badagry.

 

 

“Mr. Okafor’s suspicious activities caught the attention of the Nigerian Army, leading to his arrest and subsequent handover to NAFDAC officers at the Ports Inspection Directorate, Seme Border.

 

“Upon inspection, officers evacuated all equipment and materials used in the production of illicit drinks, effectively shutting down the illegal factory.

 

 

“Investigations revealed Mr. Okafor’s longstanding involvement in this criminal activity, which has potentially compromised regulated alcohol drinks in the Badagry area.

 

 

“NAFDAC emphasises the need for public vigilance and urges citizens to report suspicious activities to safeguard public health.”

 

“Mr. Okafor will face prosecution, and all offending products will be destroyed, with an estimated value exceeding fifty million naira (N50,000,000),” the statement added.
