The Kaduna State Police Command, yesterday, confirmed the interception of fake drugs worth over N15 million in Zaria.

The command’s spokesperson, ASP Muktar Aliyu, made the disclosure to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in a telephone interview.

He said the Police Area Command in Zaria had intercepted the fake drugs after a tip-off  by some residents.

“On getting the information, our men swung into action and eventually intercepted the adulterated drugs which would have destroyed the lives of innocent citizens.

“The said fake drugs were intercepted at Sabon Gari market in Zaria  where the owner had already offloaded the consignment for distribution.

“This is a serious calamity and of course harmful to human existence.

“I want to plead with people not to be discouraged in providing useful information to security personnel for prompt action,” he said.

According to him, investigation into the matter is ongoing in order to ascertain the origin of the drugs as well as the channels of distribution.

Investigation conducted by NAN at the Zaria Police Area Command reveals that about 10 cartons of adulterated “Ampicloxin” with “Made-in-India” label were sighted.
