The National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has shut down five unregistered sachet water factories in Yunusari LGA of Yobe State.

Yobe’s Coordinator of NAFDAC, Mr Lawan Musa Dadingelma, who disclosed this to our reporter in his office, said the factories were shut down during a routine inspection carried out in border communities with the Niger Republic due to poor manufacturing practices and not following due process of registration.

He said, ‘‘I was in Yunusari; about 100 kilometres to Niger Republic. We sealed down so many unregistered factories, we confiscated their wares and we locked down the places. We advised them to come here and register.

‘‘We thought due to the insurgency NAFDAC could not visit the place, but we took them by surprise, we were there, and we closed down five unregistered products.

‘‘They were thinking NAFDAC would not be there, and we carried out our operation successfully. The DPO helped us to achieve the desired result.’’

He added that after the operation, people were coming to the NAFDAC office to register before their factories started operation in line with water treatment procedures outlined by NAFDAC.
