Kano - The Kano State Government has sealed up Pal Pharmaceutical Industry Ltd in Kano.
The company is located on Maganda Road in the metropolis.
This is contained in a statement signed by the Public Relations Officer of the state Ministry of Health, Ibrahim Sabari, issued in Kano on Thursday.
According to the statement, the closure of the company was ordered by Gov. Rabi’u Kwankwaso during the State Executive Council meeting on Wednesday.
* An earlier version of this article mistakenly stated that PAL Pharmaceutical was closed down for the illegal production of a cough syrup with codeine properties. News24 apologises for the error.
