The Director General of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control has revealed that the agency has seized N270m worth of fake sex stimulant drugs.

Dr Paul Orhii said that his men discovered five containers of the fake Heragra and Ziagra at the APC terminals in Apapa.

Speaking during a press conference where the drug fakers were paraded, Dr Paul Orhii revealed that the fake drugs were discovered in collaboration with the officials of the Custom and Port Services.

Orhii also used the avenue to address the public warning them of the side effects of the fake sex stimulants.

The aphrodisiacs were labeled as anti malarial drugs; still they were intercepted at the terminals. These products are known drugs of misuse and abuse, which can result in very serious health problems such as increased blood pressure, stroke, ulceration of the gastro-intestinal tract, tolerance and dependence,” Dr Paul Orhii told newsmen.

May I also state that regular use of these drugs overtime can cause stroke, liver diseases, kidney disease, swelling of the face and tongue and skin disease,” he further added.
