Task Force seals 29 illegal medicine stores in Lagos
Posted on: July 14, 2015, 05:36:57 PM
29 illegal patent medicine stores have been sealed by the Lagos State Task Force on Fake, Counterfeit and Unwholesome Processed Foods for various offences contrary to the provisions of the law on the operation of pharmacies and patent medicine stores in the State.

Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Ministry of Health, Dr. Modele Osunkiyesi who disclosed this today, said the latest closure came on the heels of the government’s renewed mandate to rid the state of illegal patent medicine and pharmaceutical stores’ operators, in accordance with the provision of Chapter C34 of the Counterfeit, Fake Drugs and Unwholesome Processed Foods (Miscellaneous Provision) Act of 1999, Number 25.

Osunkeye said the sealing of the outlets was necessitated by the persistent defiance of government’s stipulated regulation on drug production, importation, manufacture, sales or display for sales, hawking, distribution, adulteration, and possession of drugs by illegal operators.
