18 May 2016 National
The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has smashed criminal rings that specialize in illegal production of different brands of fake alcoholic beverages inside the Mile 3 Market in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.
NAFDAC coordinator in the state, Mrs. Mercy Ndukwe, who disclosed this to newsmen in Port Harcourt said the fake alcoholic beverages were being produced in five lock up shops on the first floor of the market in crude and very unhygienic manner.
Ndukwe stated that gallons of liquid substances suspected to be ethanol and colourants were found all over the stores, adding that the ethanol were being mixed with colourants and used to fill used bottles of different brands of fast selling foreign and locally made alcoholic beverages.
Ndukwe however stated that the agency could not apprehend the syndicate behind the criminal act as they failed to show up while the leadership of the market claimed to be unaware of their activities adding that investigations are still ongoing with the leadership of the market to track down the fakers.
