According to the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), there is a new method devised to drug and intoxicate unsuspecting Nigerians.


The Drug control body has warned all to be cautious when taking cup of tea popularly known as `Maishayi’ from vendors.


Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye, NAFDAC Director-General gave the warning in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Abuja.


Adeyeye said that the warning became necessary following information the agency received that Maishayi now mix intoxicating drugs in the tea prepared for customers.


She mentioned intoxicating drugs such as tramadol, Vieteling, Marijuana and others, adding that people could lose their lives after taking tea mixed with such drugs.

“In the US, lots of people are dying because of these medicines. How can such medicines mix with palm wine in the name of getting high in Nigeria? There are some medicines you cannot take if you have cardiovascular problem,’’ she said.
