The Na­tional Agency for Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion and Con­trol (NAFDAC) said it has sus­pended ten man­u­fac­tur­ers in Kwara State since the be­gin­ning of this year over non­com­pli­ance with rules and reg­u­la­tions.

Di­rec­tor of the agency in the state, Mrs. Bo­laji Abay­omi, said among those sus­pended were own­ers of wa­ter fac­to­ries who failed to keep their en­vi­ron­ments clean.

Speak­ing with news­men in Ilorin, Abay­omi stated that il­le­gal man­u­fac­tur­ers would be chased out of the state.
