The Kano State Coordinator of the agency, Mr Shaba Muhammed, told journalists that the deadly chemicals included Sulphuric acid, caustic soda, hydraulic acid, hydrogen peroxide, among others.

According to Shaba, before a person engages in the sale of such substances, one needs training and certification on the handling and storage of such chemicals.

“Besides, the location of the warehouse needed to be inspected,” he said.

He said that the warehouse was situated in Sabon Gari residential area.

The coordinator appealed to residents to watch out for such a warehouse and report to the authorities to avoid unexpected calamities.

He added that the suspect was currently in NAFDAC custody and would be handed over to the Police for further investigation and prosecution soon.
