NAFDAC Cracks Down on Fake Cosmetics Producer in Lagos State

The NAFDAC Investigation & Enforcement Directorate recently raided a facility at the Balogun Trade Fair Gate, Trade Fair Complex, where they apprehended Mr. Pius Effiong Eyoh, the owner of Pasco Global Limited.

Eyoh was found to be manufacturing, packaging, distributing, and selling a range of substandard and counterfeit cosmetic products, including items like “Skin Balance Perfect Knuckle Organic Peel Therapy” and “Golden Face Triple Action Concentrated Perfect Skin.”

The products were discovered to have false labels bearing French inscriptions and a Cameroonian address, an attempt to deceive unsuspecting consumers.

As a result of NAFDAC’s intervention, the illegal manufacturing premises have been sealed, and Eyoh has been arrested. The substandard products are now scheduled for destruction.

“This crackdown is part of our ongoing efforts to protect the health and safety of Nigerian consumers,” said Dr. Mojisola Adeyeye, the Director-General of NAFDAC. “We will not tolerate the production and distribution of fake and potentially harmful cosmetic products in our country.”

The agency has urged the public to be vigilant and report any suspicious activities related to the manufacture or sale of counterfeit cosmetics to the relevant authorities.
