NAFDAC Arrests Producer Of Fake Peak Milk

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has arrested a 56-year-old man, Christopher Nnabuihe, for selling faked Peak Milk.
The suspect, who lives at 42, Cameroun Road in Calabar, Cross River State, has confessed to the crime.

A statement by NAFDAC made available to newsmen on Tuesday quoted Nnabuihe as confessing that he procured cheap powdered milk and branded it as Peak Milk, which is more expensive.

in his words: “I buy the already printed (Peak Milk) 440g packs from Ariaria Relieve Market in Aba, Abia State and bring it to Calabar for refilling. I seal them up with candle light. One 50 kilogram of the milk will fill 27 pieces and that is two cartons and three pieces. I sell one carton of the fake Peak Milk for N6,000 and make a profit of N1,000 per carton. You can only suspect it to be counterfeit through the taste because the packaging for the fake and the original is the same.”

The Cross River State Coordinator of NAFDAC, Dr. Isaac Kolawole, said the agency acted on a tip-off to arrest Nnabuihe.

the Coordinator warned that the agency would continue to track persons who indulge in adulteration of NAFDAC regulated products for arrest and prosecution.

He said the prosecution of Nnabuihe had commenced at a Magistrate’s Court in Calabar while judgment had been fixed for November 28, 2016.
