In a recent development, the Zone 2 command of the Nigeria Police Force has apprehended a couple for their involvement in the illegal production and distribution of adulterated alcoholic beverages across markets in Lagos and Ogun states over the past six years.

The suspects, identified as Margret Austine and her husband, Austine Idemudia, also known as Baba Joshua, were arrested by the Raider Section of the Zone 2 Police Command, led by CSP Ngozi Braide, at their residence on Muibi Olawumi Close, off Ayetoro/Itẹle Road in Lagos.

Acting on intelligence regarding the illicit production, police operatives raided the couple's residence on April 4, uncovering a clandestine factory setup where various fake alcoholic drinks, including wine, liquor, champagne, and others, were being manufactured.

Recovered during the operation were counterfeit drinks branded as Del-Mud, Del-Mud Royal, and Smooth Brandy Wine, packaged in bottles and mini packs. Additionally, unlabeled and branded bottles of suspected adulterated alcoholic beverages, along with containers filled with suspected adulteration ingredients, were seized.

Equipment used in the production process, such as pumping machines, funnels, sealing machines, and other production and branding items, were also confiscated.

Margret, the female suspect apprehended at the scene, confessed to a six-year involvement in the illegal operation, revealing that their adulterated products were sold to buyers across Lagos and Ogun states.

The Zone 2 Police Public Relations Officer (ZPPRO), SP Ayuba T. Umma, stated that the investigation into the case is ongoing, with further information to be released to the public as it becomes available.

AIG Olatoye Durosinmi, the Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of Zone 2 Command, emphasized the importance of vigilance when purchasing food and beverages, highlighting the health risks associated with consuming adulterated products.

"The Zone 2 Police Command remains committed to the safety and well-being of all residents within Lagos and Ogun states," the statement concluded.
