Cement adulterating factory discoverd in Enugu

28 November 2012, 16:50

Enugu -  The Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) says it has uncovered a team that adulterates cement in Enugu State.

Mr Bede Obayi, the Head of Compliance and Inspection Unit in SON, announced this to newsmen on Wednesday in Lagos.

Obayi said that the culprits were specialists in using quart clay to mix cement, re-bag and flood the market with their products.

He said that SON acted on intelligence report to arrest three persons.

Obayi alleged that the team was carrying out the nefarious activity in a remote area in Abakpa in Enugu East Local Government area.

He expressed the commitment of SON to flush out unscrupulous persons engaged in the illegal business.

``We will smoke them out and make them to face the law.

``The adulteration of cement can lead to building and construction failures, but we will do our best to reduce the incidence of building collapse,’’ he said.

According to him, SON will not tolerate sales of sub-standard cement.

He said that cement depots at Abakpa-Nike  area had various brands of cement like Dangote, Elephant, BUA, Burham and Ibeto cements, among others.
