NAFDAC Busts A Transit Warehouse Stacked With Tramadol And Controlled Drugs

Following a lead, the National Agency for Food and Drug, Administration and Control (NAFDAC), carried out substantive surveillance on nefarious activities of a cartel involved in illegal importation of banned and controlled pharmaceutical products.

The Agency’s Operatives at about 1:00hrs on September 14, 2018 raided a transit warehouse at Ijora Ororo, Lagos State and discovered 187 cartons of assorted Tramadol (120mg, 200mg and 225mg respectively) and more than 49 cartons of Diazepam (a controlled drug) concealed amongst household items including but not limited to bicycle, used tyres and printers.

The seized products, valued at N105,650,000 million, have been evacuated from the transit warehouse for necessary action and further investigation.

We advise the general public to be watchful and should not hesitate to report any suspicious activities within their environment to the nearest NAFDAC office.
