The Kano State Consumer Protection Council (KCPC) has intercepted a trailer loaded with fake and unregistered drugs worth N50 million.

The Acting Managing Director of the Council, Dr Baffa Dan-Agundi made the disclosure in a statement signed by the council Spokesman, Mr Nabilisi Kofar-Na’isa, on Thursday in Kano.

He noted that the operation was carried out after intelligence reports gathered by his men leading to the seizure.

“The truck was intercepted on Feb.18, at about 3:30AM at Filing Parking by Igbo Road,  Sabon Gari and was  conveying Drugs such as Coll Cap- Unregistered, Solidrex- imitation, Basuka- imitation and Chest and Lung which was discovered to be unregistered.”

According to him, the driver and owners of the dangerous drugs managed to escape after they fled and abandoned the vehicle and the content upon citing the men of the council.

He enjoined those who were into the illegal business to know that there was a new Sheriff in town and  as such, it was  no longer business as usual as his office would  do everything possible within the confines of the law to arrest and prosecute anyone guilty of supplying fake, expired and contraband drugs to the state.

Dan-Agundi  urged the general public to be more vigilant and join hands with the state government in the fight against drug abuse and unwholesome products in the state which posed grievous danger to human health.

“My office is always open to receive credible information that will  aid the activities of the council to checkmate nefarious businesses of unscrupulous persons in the society, ” he said
