The Lagos State Police Command said it has arrested two suspects in possession of expired drugs, planning to sell them to unsuspecting Nigerians.

According to the State Police spokesman, Benjamin Hundeyin, the two suspects, Augustine Egemoye, 60 and Innocent Eremosele, 35, confessed to the police that their truck was full of expired drugs, which they planned to deliver to sellers, who then sold to unsuspecting Nigerians.

Hundeyin, who confirmed the incident explained: “At about 5:40 pm yesterday, a patrol team from Okokomaiko Division stopped and searched a Volkswagen LT bus at Afromedia.

“Found in the bus were seventy cartons of Feed Fine Cyproheptadine Caplets 4g, all with an expiry date of 2016. The two occupants of the vehicle, Augustine Egemoye 60 and Innocent Eremosele 35, confessed they were taking the expired drugs to somebody in Alaba who would change the expiry dates and thereafter proceed with the drugs to Port-Harcourt to be sold.

“The suspects, drug and the vehicle are currently in custody. Efforts are on to arrest the owner of the drugs, the individual altering expiry dates and other indicted persons.”
