Justice Nnamdi Dimgba of the court, however advised the accused to stop distributing fake drugs, as he was putting innocent lives at risk.

“If your relative is ill, will you send those drugs without NAFDAC number to them? That is not the way to make money; you have to stop selling fake drugs because you could incur the wrath of God", the judge said.
