NAFDAC Busts Fake Cosmetics Syndicate in Lagos, Unveils Illicit Trade at Trade Fair Complex

In a significant crackdown on counterfeit goods, the Investigation and Enforcement Directorate of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has exposed the illicit operations of a fake cosmetics syndicate situated at the Balogun Trade Fair Gate, within Lagos State’s Trade Fair Complex.

 

Revealing this development, NAFDAC made public its recent intervention, which led to the apprehension of Mr. Pius Effiong Eyoh, the proprietor of Pasco Global Limited, implicated in the unlawful manufacturing, packaging, distribution, and sale of a wide array of substandard and counterfeit cosmetic products.

 

Among the seized items were falsely labeled products such as ‘Skin Balance,’ ‘Perfect Knuckle,’ ‘Organic Peel Therapy,’ and ‘Golden Face Triple Action Concentrated Perfect Skin,’ masquerading under fraudulent French inscriptions and a fictitious Cameroonian address.

 

NAFDAC’s swift action culminated in the sealing of the clandestine manufacturing premises, the arrest of Eyoh, and the slated destruction of his inferior merchandise.

Notable seizures included counterfeit Nivea products, Jik bleach, Harpic toilet cleaner, and Airwick room freshener, with the total value of confiscated goods estimated at ₦50 million, with fake Nivea products alone valued at ₦45 million.
