The Director General of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, Dr Paul Orhii has revealed that the agency has recently seized fake sex stimulant drugs worth N270 million.

Orhii made this disclosure during a press brief with journalist while parading the suspects.

He stated that his men in collaboration with the Custom and Port services discovered five containers of the fake Heragra and Ziagra at the APC terminals in Apapa, Lagos state

He said, “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,”

“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.
