The National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has taken a decisive step in the fight against counterfeit and substandard goods by destroying fake products worth over ₦4.2 billion in Awka, the capital of Anambra State. The destruction, carried out at the Aswama Dumpsite in Umuzocha, aligns with NAFDAC's mission to eradicate the circulation of spurious and unauthorized products in Nigeria.

Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye, the Director-General of NAFDAC, emphasized the significance of the exercise and the agency's commitment to its mandate. The event, conducted by the Head of the Task Force team, Francis Ononiwu, marked a joint effort of the South-East and South-South zones in carrying out periodic destructions.

The products destroyed comprised a range of spurious, counterfeited, substandard, and falsified items. Among them were medicinal products like antibiotics, anti-hypertensive, anti-diabetic, anti-asthmatic, aphrodisiacs, antimalarial, anti-inflammatory, herbal remedies, and psychoactive drugs.
