Airlines Warned About Counterfeit Drugs

Aviation India a publication that services the Indian civil aviation industry is reporting that large consignments of fake Indian drugs manufactured in China are finding their way to Nigeria.

The Nigerian authorities are apparently warning airlines that they would be held responsible for spurious drugs carried by passengers flying into that country. The warning was issued by the NAFDAC following complaints from Indian pharmaceutical manufacturers.

Given the severe epidemic and deadly impact on the population due to counterfeit drugs necessitates the Nigerian Government taking extreme actions to thwart this deadly criminal act.

Hopefully commercial interests and industry will be part of the solution in eradicating this global blight.
