TVC News Nigeria gives us a report on unsafe, ineffective medication.

Task force officials shut down no fewer than 178 pharmacies and drug stores across the city of Port Harcourt, Nigeria this week. The task force has been working in collaboration with the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) to identify and shut down pharmacies that are operating in an unsafe manner and that are selling the substandard drugs. They also arrested a number of suspects in connection with the spoiled drugs. Some Pharmacies even tried to reopen and continue selling the medication, they were arrested as well. This is a major victory for the task force and for the people of Port Harcourt.
