NAFDAC Shuts Spa Clinic, Bakery In Rivers

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control has shut down a spa clinic and a bakery in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.

NAFDAC said the premises were shut for allegedly contravening various agency regulations and standard practices.

The NAFDAC Director, South-South, Francis Ononiwu, disclosed this through the zone’s Public Relations Officer, Cyril Monye and made it available to newsmen in Port Harcourt.

Ononiwu said the clampdown on the outfits following reliable intelligence received by NAFDAC on their activities.

The statement reads, “Through NAFDAC online checks, it was discovered that a spa; “Aphicdite Beauty Spa, located at Peter Odili Road, Port Harcourt was involved in deploying unregistered cosmetics products for the beatification of unsuspecting women.

“Cosmetics and medical products that are supposed to be used in registered clinics were been deplored by nonprofessionals who lack the prerequisite training on what they are doing.”

He further said products include, injectables which were been administered to women by those not trained as medical practitioners.

The NAFDAC director injects both ‘intramuscular and intravenous injections into unsuspecting women who want to beautify their bodies and for other purposes.

He said that prescribed drugs and injections need to be recommended and administered by qualified medical personnel, not quacks who cannot handle complications or medical emergencies that might lead to death as a result.

The statement stated that the outfit was not registered for the activities they were carrying out.

The ‘offensive’ products, he said were evacuated to NAFDAC Zonal office in Port Harcourt, while the facility was put on hold and the owner of the spar clinic invited for further investigations.
