Expired drug dealer abandons shop, flees as NAFDAC storms Onitsha market

Owner of one of sexual enhancement drugs shops in Onitsha, Anambra State on Friday abandoned his store and fled following visit of officers of National Agency for Foods and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) to the area.

NAFDAC Chief Laboratory Technologist, Usman Amen, who led the investigation and Enforcement Directorate team from Lagos, said the sexual store, located at Progressive Science and Allied Dealers lane, Bridge-Head Market, was known for selling unregistered and expired drugs.

Amen gave the names of the sexual enhancement drugs as delay viagra, afrofranil, breast enhancement, ass enhancement, rocket in pocket men gel, tramadol, among others. 

He said, “We came from from Lagos based on a tip off, before we arrived here, the owner of this sexual enhancement abandoned his store and ran away. 

“We have to break the store and enter. On entering, we saw some expired drugs like tramadol, breast enhancer and all kings of sexual drugs enhancers. 

“We have to evaluate the drugs and seal up the store. The owner will have to come to our office in Lagos for interrogation. 

“We also sealed off the store in Ogbo-Ogwu Bridge Head Market because a particular drug we were informed about was not found but the invoice indicated when the drug was sold.

” The second store was sealed and drugs evacuated because some of the drugs are not allowed to be sold.”

While warning that certain drugs being produced and sold in the market were not worth taking, Amen called on residents to be at alert.

Chief Servant of the lane, where the sexual enhancement store was bursted, Mr George Opara, described the act as embarrassing and disturbing, assuring that the culprit would be penalized as deterrent to others.
