National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control, NAFDAC, on Thursday said it intercepted 21 containers of spoilt frozen fish at Tincan Island Port in Lagos.

The Director General of NAFDAC, Prof. Moji Adeyeye, who disclosed this in a statement in Abuja, therefore urged members of the public to be cautious and not to consume frozen fish that would be harmful to them.

Recall that fish is among items banned for importation into the country by the Federal Government.

The agency also said it seized four trucks of bottle water imported from China, adding that the water was concealed in hair attachment cartons.

According Adeyeye, other items seized included imported fruit juices labelled in Chinese language.

She added that the seizures were made recently at Seme border post in Lagos.

The Director General assured that NAFDAC would continue to work with other security agencies to ensure that no harmful food items, illicit or unregistered drugs or water among others, found their way into the country.
