The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC says it is concerned over the  indiscriminate use of performance enhancing substances popularly known as aphrodisiac, warning that consumption of such substances could lead to stroke, organ damage, or sudden death.

NAFDAC’s Director-General, Prof Mojisola Adeyeye said this in her Christmas and New Year goodwill message to Nigerians,

Adeyeye decried the preponderance of performance enhancing drugs in the Nigeria market.

She said: “Most of the performance enhancing drugs are not registered with NAFDAC. They are smuggled into the country. If they were registered, the producers and peddlers alike would not be doing what they are doing in the supermarkets, social media platforms and on the streets.

The NAFDAC boss also described as false the claim by the producers of the products that they have no side effects, insisting that the majority of the products did not go through the approval process of the Agency.

She however, warned that the Agency would not relent in running after the peddlers of such dangerous drugs until they are brought to book for violating the regulations.
