NAFDAC seals Company manufacturing fake drugs, arrest distributors | Read More 

In response to a complaint about the sale of falsified Ampicillin + Cloxacillin powder in Kano, NAFDAC launched an investigation, leading to the arrest of a distributor, Mr. Godwin Alumona.

Further inquiries resulted in the apprehension of Mr. Hillary Onah Chigozie, a major distributor, and subsequently, the Managing Director of Giddyson Healthcare Limited, Mr. Gideon Amoo, in Niger State.

 

The investigation revealed that Giddyson Healthcare Limited, located in Tafa LGA, Niger State, had been producing several falsified products, including Asian Ampicillin suspension, Asian Erythromycin suspension, and Asian ORS for years.

These products are not registered with NAFDAC and carry a fake manufacturer’s name and address.

Despite NAFDAC’s registration of only two products for the company, Giddyson Healthcare Limited was found to be distributing a range of unapproved medications.

 

The factory has been sealed, and the Managing Director has confessed to the illicit activities.
