The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has announced that it is on the lookout for some drugs that are suspected to be made from the flesh of babies.

According to the Director General of the Agency, Prof Moji Adeyeye, “NAFDAC was informed by the Federal Ministry of Health on Thursday of some Chinese drugs that contain human remains. I immediately alerted the agency’s Ports Inspection Directorate to be on the lookout (for these) at our ports and borders since the drugs may be brought into the country as small packages. he Pharmacovigilance and Post-Marketing Directorate has also been alerted to conduct surveillance in our markets. The Registration and Regulatory Affairs Directorate is also on the lookout.”

According to a memo from the National Intelligence Agency to NAFDAC and the Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON), “The South Korean Customs Service, on September 30, 2018, revealed that it had seized 2,751 Chinese drugs/capsules, containing human remains from foetuses, infants and flesh imported into the country by some Chinese nationals.The manufacturers claim that the drugs/capsules can boost stamina, cure cancer, diabetes and some other terminal diseases.
