FG destroys 15 containers of imported frozen fish

The Federal Department of Fisheries on Saturday destroyed 15 containers of frozen fish allegedly belonging to a company, Food Solution Nigeria Limited.

According to the Deputy Director of Fisheries, Mrs. Olabisi Adepegba, out of the company’s frozen fish-filled containers, 15 contained spoilt fishes.

Olabisi said the firm, Mediterranean Shipping Company, which brought in the fishes, would pay for the destruction exercise.

The 15 containers were evacuated from Sifax Terminal to Lagos State Waste Management Authority’s dumpsite, at Epe, where the products were destroyed, after which a destruction certificate was issued to the shipping company and a copy to FDF for record purposes.
