Following reports that there is an influx of drugs suspected to have been made from the flesh of babies or foetuses, the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has launched a search for such drugs.
Reports say the agency has deployed its officials to all ports and select markets in search of such drugs which are purported to have been imported from China.
That much information was made known by Director-General of NAFDAC, Prof. Moji Adeyeye on Friday.
He said; “NAFDAC was informed by the Federal Ministry of Health on Thursday of some Chinese drugs that contain human remains. I immediately alerted the agency’s Ports Inspection Directorate to be on the lookout (for these) at our ports and borders since the drugs may be brought into the country as small packages.
“The Pharmacovigilance and Post-Marketing Directorate has also been alerted to conduct surveillance in our markets. The Registration and Regulatory Affairs Directorate is also on the lookout,” he added.
