National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has raised the alarm over the nationwide proliferation of unapproved herbal products, which it describes as dangerous.
NAFDAC Director General, Professor Mojisola Adeyeye, told journalists in Abuja that most of the herbal medicines were in the form of snuff and oral liquids, which she said were mainly sold by street hawkers.

The director general also noted that the enforcement team of the agency was commencing a nationwide clampdown on the manufacturers and traders who sold such uncertified products.
She said the agency has commenced a nationwide mop-up of a substance referred to as “sacra herbs” in circulation.
