Abuja – Surveillance efforts will be stepped up in an attempt to clamp down on the illegal selling of drugs in Niger State markets.
The National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration Control (NAFDAC) has unearthed a market for selling fake and dangerous drugs in the state.
The State Coordinator of the Agency, Dadi Mulak, said they have found large quantities of various dangerous drugs on display for buyers in some markets.
In one such market in Beji village, drugs were sold and measured like grains.
"The surveillance has become necessary in view of the facts that drug dealers have devised a strategy to avoid arrest and therefore we urge people to stop purchasing drugs in open markets," said Mulak.
The agency will keep a much closer eye on village markets to prevent the illegal activities from continuing.
