NAFDAC officials have arrested 2 men selling unapproved Ebola test kits and expired hand sanitizers in Lagos state Nigeria.

The DG of the National Food and drug administration agency, Dr Paul Orhii made this known today at NAFDAC’s branch in Lagos.

According to him, unscrupulous members of the society have decided to cash in on the unfortunate Ebola incidence in the country by bringing in all sorts of products including expired hand sanitisers.

“We wonder how some people can be so callous to make money out of the situation despite this deadly disease called ebola”

”The most troubling is the case of Mr James Nnaji of 116, Oguta road, Onitsha, who imported expired brands of hand sanitisers through NAHCO Lagos,” Orhii said.

The products, according to the DG, were: Soft care natural, Soft care lemon, Soft care lavender, Soft care apple, all of which had expired in December 29, 2012, two years ago, “but yet found their way into the country.”

Orhii also said the agency also recently detected the sale of un-evaluated and untested ‘Rapid response Ebola virus test kits’ which were being aggressively marketed by one Mr John Ojewale of Multi Products Medical Supply Company Limited.

The suspect, the DG said, was trailed and apprehended by the agency and upon interrogation, he claimed that one Mr Lateef Bamisedun, supplied him the kits, which were allegedly imported from Canada.

“Lateef Bamisedun was arrested and he confessed to have imported the kits from Canada,” Orhii said.

“The danger associated with the use of substandard hand sanitisers and untested Ebola Test kits is indeed grave and could derail all efforts put in place to contain the spread of the Ebola Virus Disease in the country,” he added.

He was only caught because he got greedy and imported so many boxes in one go. Lots and lots of items imported into Nigeria are diseased and unclean. Those who pick up thrown out clothes and shoes from the streets of Europe and sell them as "NEW"in Nigeria has been going on for decades! Our borders are more porous than a sieve!!!!!!!!!

This outbreak was an opportunity to many to make some money for themselves even our leaders made money from it but importing fake sanitisers is very bad,it was good opportunity for †̥н̲̣̣̣̥ε̲̣̣̣̥ companys producing hand sanitiser so even if they import geniune one,they will still make it but we nigerians will neva change
