Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Shehu Umar,Gusau

The Zam­fara State His­bah Com­mis­sion has in­ter­cepted bags of grains and cot­ton that were ei­ther not full or mixed with sand in Talata Ma­fara town­ship mar­ket.

His­bah per­ma­nent com­mis­sioner, Al­haji Lawali Dan Ali, said the con­sign­ment in­ter­cepted in­clude 70 bags of maize,50 bags of mil­let, guinea corn, pep­per, 64 bags of ground­nut and 45 bags of cot­ton. “Cheat­ing of un­sus­pect­ing cus­tomers must stop forth­with as this can lead to a dis­as­trous con­se­quence. Adul­ter­ated food could be very poi­sonous to con­sumers,” he said.

He lamented that in re­cent times, cot­ton farm­ers have been com­plain­ing of poor cot­ton seed ger­mi­na­tion ow­ing to adul­ter­ation.
