The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has reported conducting a crackdown on drug peddlers at motor parks and markets within the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

In a statement on X, the agency said operatives of its investigation and enforcement directorate acted on intelligence from the Department of State Services (DSS) to carry out the raids.

NAFDAC said its operatives seized illegal drugs estimated at over N107 million and arrested 20 suspects.

“The operation coordinated by the Kaduna and Abuja I&E/FTF offices targeted illegal drug sales at Area 1 Motor Park, Dunamis Market Garki, Zuba Market, Nyanya Motor Park, and Asokoro over a two-day period,” the statement reads.

“During the raid, the team arrested twenty suspects and confiscated over 50 wares of illegal and dangerous drugs, including Tramadol 225 mg, Rohypnol, Diazepam, Cod Amol, aphrodisiacs, and codeine syrups. The estimated street value of the seized drugs is over ₦107 million.

“The arrested individuals are under investigation, and all confiscated products will be destroyed. This raid is part of an ongoing effort to rid public spaces of illegal drug hawking and ensure public safety.”

Earlier this month, NAFDAC sealed more than five cosmetic shops in the Lagos International Trade Fair Complex for “selling fake products”.
