Kano Govt Uncovers Adulterated Fertilizers At Warehouse


Kano State government has uncovered a large quantity of suspected adulterated fertilizers hidden at a warehouse in Gunduwawa in Gabasawa Local Government Area (LGA) of the state.

This was made known on Tuesday by the Acting managing director of Kano State Consumer Protection Council, Alhaji Baffa Babba-Dan’agundi, in a statement by the spokesperson for the council, Mr Musbahu Yakasai in Kano.

According to him, “we received information from some good samaritans last week that the owners of the warehouse were allegedly mixing original fertilisers with sand, repackaging it and selling it to farmers.”

Yakasai also stated that the council also intercepted a trailer loaded with expired semovita at Singer Market and also uncovered another warehouse full of adulterated fertilisers in Garko LGA.

He said that “our team immediately swung into action in our efforts to protect the people of Kano from using unwholesome, fake and adulterated products.”

While commending the residents of the community, he then urged them not to relent in providing the council with credible information about such unscrupulous people and their businesses.

We are very grateful for your usual cooperation, saying that with your collective efforts and useful information, the enemies of progress will not escape from being arrested and prosecuted in accordance with the law.
