Tension In Kano State As Expired Drugs Were Discovered In Medicine Stores [Photos]

Kano, North-West Nigeria, had witnessed a series of deaths and the outbreak of an unknown disease which was later discovered to have links with expired drinks sold in the markets.

There is currently a heightened tension as Consumer Protections Council (CPC) arrested some individuals who sell expired drugs in their stores.

The raid was carried out by Usman Naibawa who is the Senior Special Assistant to Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje on Road and Traffic Agency.

Some of the intercepted drugs include anti-malaria, multi-vitamins, children cough syrups and pregnancy test strips. The medicines have been expired since 2019.

This is a very good development. The people of Kano need to be very vigilant. Expired drugs are dangerous to the health.

This has also raised caused fears among residents, if such a large amount hazardous drugs could be discovered, it means there are many more others yet to be discovered.

If the government keep up with such work, the menace will end.
