Ten suspects have been arrested by the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control over adulterated beverages.

The agency also shut down the Cemetery Market in Aba, Abia State on Tuesday, December 12, after carrying out a raid which began on December 11. 

Director, South-East Zone of NAFDAC, Martins Iluyomade said the suspects in Cemetery Market occupy over 240 shops meant for traders which they turned into production centres for large-scale adulteration of beverages and drugs 

Iluyomade said; 

“What’s happening here at Cemetery Market, Aba is worse than Boko Haram. We saw how many shops were converted into manufacturing centres for all manner of wines, expensive drinks, and revalidation of the expiry date of products.
