NAFDAC to take action over high rate of suicide with Sniper

After the outcry over the high rate of suicide by sniper, the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), is considering modifying the container of popular insecticide.


The Director General of the agency, Prof. Christiana Adeyeye, made the disclosure during NAFDAC’s commemoration of World Food Safety Day.


According to her, sniper containers could now be made very difficult to open, or sniper may be totally turned into a spray rather than the liquid contents it is known for.


It would be recalled that few weeks ago, a father of three, Mr Samuel Sunday, allegedly poisoned his three children with sniper.
