NAFDAC Raises Alarm Over Dangers Of Self Medication, Fake Drugs

Published

on

In a bid to ensure a good life for all Nigerians, National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has flagged off a campaign against dangers of public health challenges.

The campaign is aimed at addressing the following health challenges: dangers of buying medicines from hawkers; abuse of Codeine and self-medication especially among youths; dangerous effect of using Kerosene tankers to load groundnut oil; the dangerous practice of using potassium bromated to bake bread; use of Azo-dye in Palm oil; dangers of using Sniper to preserve any type of food or keep flies away from meat.

Others are dangers of consumption of excessive oil; use of formalin on food and its associated health hazards; low level of exclusive breastfeeding practice by lactating mothers and its associated health hazards; dangers of wrong use of pesticides and insecticides; wrong use of chemicals and its hazardous effects and problem of antimicrobial resistance arising from animal meat.

Speaking at the sensitisation campaign in Lagos yesterday, NAFDAC Director-General, Prof. Mojisola Christianah Adeyeye, who was represented by the Director, Ports Inspection, Prof. Sampson Adebayo, encouraged Nigerians to buy drugs from only licensed pharmacies and medicine stores and refrain from self-medication.

She said the key objective of the sensitization programme is “to intensify and expand the scope of our informal and formal behaviour change communication strategies in order to reach the vulnerable communities especially at the grassroots,” noting, “dissemination of food and drug safety information is an important aspect of our regulatory work.”

Prof. Adeyeye hinted that NAFDAC has engaged the services of a project consultant, MMCC, to drive the sensitization campaigns, adding that the campaign materials are ready to be deployed on the field.

She said the sensitisation campaign was aimed at protecting Nigerians “against the deleterious effects of unwholesome food, falsified medical products, harmful cosmetics, poor waters and other substandard regulated products.

“It is common knowledge that Nigeria has a preponderant share of the global problem of falsified medical products and unwholesome food. The advent of COVID-19 has aggravated the problem with the challenges posed by substandard and falsified personal protective equipment (PPEs). The sensitization campaigns will therefore contribute significantly to Federal Government’s concerted efforts to inform, sensitize, educate and alert the public about inherent dangers of intake and use of those spurious regulated products.

“Sokoto, Kebbi, Bauchi, Rivers, Edo, Osun, Kwara and Lagos have so far been selected as pilot states for the sensitisation campaigns. NAFDAC intends to organise the programme in phases and stagger to cover all the 36 states of the federation.”

NAFDAC boss informed that the mass media, youth organisations and civil societies in the pilot state will be in the forefront of the sensitisation campaigns, adding that the target audiences are market women and men, road transport workers and employers, community youth organisations and students.

While expressing optimism that the participants and target audiences would become dependable partners and allies of NAFDAC, and be in the forefront of sustaining the public awareness campaigns by disseminating the information and messages to the grassroots, Prof Adeyeye said the ultimate goal is to ensure that the various communities take ownership of the care and management of their own health.

NAFDAC boss also gave assurance that the agency under her watch will not leave anything unturned in “our concerted efforts to rid the country of the menace of falsified medical products, unwholesome food, harmful cosmetic, poorly packaged water and other substandard products.”

Lagos CP Vows To Arrest Motorcyclists Who Killed Policeman, Destroyed Patrol Vehicles

Published

on

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu, has vowed to arrest and prosecute the hoodlums who killed a policeman, CSP Kazeem Abonde, in the Ajao Estate of Lagos State.

The victim was killed on Thursday when policemen carrying out enforcement in the area were resisted by the riders, who protested against the seizure of their means of livelihood.

The situation was said to have snowballed into a clash and resulted in the death of Abonde, who was reportedly hacked to death.

Spokesman for the Command, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, in a statement on Friday, confirmed the killing of Abonde by the rampaging hoodlums.

He said the urchins attacked the policemen with guns, cutlasses and other dangerous weapons.

The statement was titled, ‘Senior Police Officer Attacked, Killed During Raid Of Criminal Hideouts In Lagos’.

It read, “The Lagos State Police Command lost one of its finest officers during a raid on criminal hideouts in Ajao Estate, Lagos State yesterday 23rd September, 2021.

“The incident happened when tactical teams of the Command comprising men drawn from RRS, Taskforce, Ajao Estate Division and other divisions were carrying out raid of identified flashpoints and enforcing the ban on use of motorcycles in restricted areas in the Estate and similar places in the State.

“The exercise was a routine proactive approach aimed at curtailing activities of armed robbers and other criminal elements in the State. Similar exercises were carried out in the past in other parts of the state which have resulted in reduction in crimes in the areas.

“After the successful operations which led to the arrest of some of the suspects, other criminal elements and hoodlums in their large number laid siege to the exit of the Estate and attacked the policemen with guns, cutlasses and other dangerous weapons.

“Unfortunately, during the fatal attack, CSP Kazeem Sumonu Abonde attached to the Operations Department of the Command was brutally killed by the hoodlums. The DPO Ajao Estate, CSP Abdullahi Malla and other Police officers equally sustained varying degrees of injuries. The corpse of the deceased officer has been deposited at the Yaba Mainland Hospital for autopsy.

“The Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu while condemning the attack on the policemen who were carrying out legitimate duty at the time, has directed that a discreet investigation into the incident should be carried out immediately. The CP has equally vowed to ensure that all suspects responsible for the dastardly act would be brought to book soon.

“The Commissioner of Police has promised that this mournful incident would not dampen the morale of the Command or discourage it from carrying out its statutory duties of protecting lives and property of the Citizens in Lagos State.”
