The National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has discovered an illegal production of fake cosmetics at the Balogun Trade Fair Complex, Lagos State.

NAFDAC, in a post Monday on its X handle, stated that its Investigation and Enforcement Directorate uncovered the facilities and ensured the arrest of the producer, identified as Pius Eyoh.

The seized items include Skin Balance Perfect Knuckle Organic Peel Therapy and Golden Face Triple Action Concentrated Perfect Skin.

According to NAFDAC, Mr. Eyoh was caught processing and packaging these cosmetic products with false labels bearing French inscriptions and a Cameroonian address.

“NAFDAC’s intervention led to the closure of the illegal manufacturing premises, Eyoh’s arrest, and the scheduling of his substandard products for destruction,” it stated.

PREMIUM TIMES recently reported that NAFDAC apprehended hawkers of aphrodisiac and other illicit drugs in Apapa, Lagos State during a targeted raid on drug hawkers.

The agency confiscated drugs worth N50 million, including aphrodisiacs, narcotic substances (such as tramadol), antibiotics, and over-the-counter medications.
