NAFDAC apprehends fake cosmetics producer in Lagos

The National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has exposed an illegal production of fake cosmetics at the Balogun Trade Fair Complex, Lagos State.

NAFDAC in a post Monday, April 22, on its X handle noted that its Investigation and Enforcement Directorate found out the facilities and ensured the arrest of the producer, identified as Pius Eyoh.

Eyoh, the owner of Pasco Global Limited, was taken in for “manufacturing, packaging, distributing, and selling a range of substandard and counterfeit cosmetic products.”

The seized items include Skin Balance Perfect Knuckle Organic Peel Therapy and Golden Face Triple Action Concentrated Perfect Skin.

According to NAFDAC, Eyoh was caught in the act of processing and packaging these products with fake labels bearing French inscriptions and a Cameroonian address.

“NAFDAC’s intervention led to the sealing of the illegal manufacturing premises, Eyoh’s arrest, and the scheduling of his substandard products for destruction,” it noted.
