NAFDAC seizes sex stamina drugs, others worth N15 million in Taraba
The National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has in its recent operations in Gembu, Taraba State, impounded unregistered drugs worth N15 million.
The impounded drugs included Tramadol and Sildenafil combination which are used to enhance sexual performance
Joseph Asikpo, the state coordinator of the agency, made this known at a media briefing in Jalingo on Friday, Premium Times reports
According to him, the drugs were evacuated in 20 sacks and seven cartons from some hidden stores in the area.
He said that the Tramadol and Sildenafil combination was an unregistered drug used by people in the area to enhance sexual performance.
“The problems associated with Tramadol alone outweigh its benefits because its indiscriminate use causes serious bodily harm.
“This is because the drug has addictive tendency and it is responsible for several violent behaviour we see on the streets today,” Mr. Asikpo said.
The coordinator said that other illegal drugs seized included banned Analgin and Gentamycin injections, fake Swidar and Ampiclox tablets, fake Mixagrip, different brands of Nimesulide, among others.
